Highs and Lows

20 Mar

I’m getting sick, which SUCKS!! Especially since I have a test Friday and a cruise coming up! I talked to my professors for this test block, though, and I’m getting a few accommodations for this exam, so the stress level is a little lower.

Also, as per my psychologist…I’m not allowed to stay alone anymore. I have to check in with her every night and tell her who I’m staying with, so we’ll see how that goes. -__-

On a lighter note, I aced the physiology miniboard!!! 7 points higher than the national average! That means I get enough bonus points to raise my OS1 grade a whole letter grade!!! I’m pretty sure God took that miniboard for me. I didn’t study for it. I was already mentally prepared to retake it this summer.

I passed my biochem miniboard (that I didn’t really study for, shh), which means that I have officially passed my 1st semester of medical school! I needed that.

In fact, my entire M1 class passed, because we’re that cool.

My Grades for the semester are as follows:

  • Community Health: A
  • Fundamentals of Medicine: A
  • Basic Principles of Human Biology (Code for Biochemistry): B
  • Organ Systems I (The Bulk of Everything We Learned): C

The C in Organ Systems I can be raised to a B if I do well on the Physiology and/or Histology/Cell Biology Miniboards. I had a B in it the whole time, until I kinda failed the last test and got a C on the biochem miniboard. However, under the circumstances, I’m pretty darn proud of that C in OS1, thank you.
