Although I check out the SABA forum, I've applied to MUA (pre-med) after evaulating my personal situation. I originally went to college as a science illustration major, taking classes in Bio, Chem, Anatomy, Zoology.... but ended up an art major only. Now I'm an Associate Art Director for national health care publications, and wanted to get back into the science/medical side. After intensely evaluating where I'm at, where I've been, where I want to go in life...and what's important to me, I've decided medicine is it. Since my science grades are a bit old (9-11 years!), I realized my best course of action was to retake them. I'm currently enrolled in a Bio and PreCalc class at my local college to get me into gear (on top of my full-time job....no easy task....I was warned!)
I have my interview lined up for the 23rd, and am hoping to begin classes in May.
In the meantime I plan to get my brain primed for the intensity, focus and dedication that lies ahead.
