Calling All Non-Traditional Students

I know it's a little ironic that my previous post was my decision regarding blogging, and yet I haven't updated in...4 months. Yeah, sorry about that! And, I really don't have a reason for that except for the boring, I got a little busy-didn't have much to share-didn't want to bore anyone-excuse.

Anyways, moving on -- I have some pretty exciting news!! And if you don't think it's really exciting, please just humor me, because I'm pretty excited about it!! =) =) =)

I will be starting a series on my blog entitled - Non-Trad Thursdays. When I didn't attend medical school right after college, I thought the worst had happened. It wasn't until I actually started medical school, did I realize how many non-traditional students there were, and actually made me regret not doing more with my time off. Most of that attributed to simply being unaware of the plethora of opportunities. I love hearing about how others utilized their time off, and I'm sure it will help a lot of other premed students who are in our boat!

I'm hoping to start off the series next month, depending on how many volunteers I get. Every Thursday, we will learn of a different individual's journey into medical school, non-traditionally. I've recruited a few medical students already, but I'm always looking for more!!! I realize there many definitions of non-traditional students, but I'm just defining it as any student who did not enter medical school directly after completing undergrad.

If you were once a non-traditional applicant, and are interested in sharing your story with us -- please send me an email at piklblog@gmail.com. Thank you!!! =)
