So I mentioned that one of my coworkers has been trying to get my attention… Did I mention that his girlfriend is also one of our coworkers? Apparently they’re also in a very open relationship and he had her permission to ask to sleep with me! What makes it creepier is that technically this guy is also my boss. What makes it creepier still, is that I consider both of these two genuinely good people, and even friends, but hanging out with them from now on is just… words cannot describe.
It was a beautiful movie… I loved it and my heart is full of hurt and sadness.
On my school’s website you can see how full a class is in the course lookup…. you should see if you could find out about thatI actually looked them up, and all of them were already full. People like to drop in and out all of the time, so there is a chance of me still getting them, but it’s really unlikely once all spots are taken. I’m really hoping that the advisers will forcibly place me into the classes though, coz’ I’ve been told they have the power to do that, especially when it comes to a student graduating on time. Whether or not they choose to use that power for me though, is completely up to them.
Right now, from my calculations, I have a combined GPA of 3.5 from my courses at PAC and TAMU, and I have completed 121 hours by the end of this semester. Vet schools would like a 3.66GPA to even consider individuals, unless there are special occasions, like me for instance: students that are working and do not have time to study. Because of how many hours I already have, I would need all A’s from here on out to meet that expectation, and I don’t think I can. However, if GPA falls below expectation, they want students to make up for this with high shadowing/internship hours with veterinarians, and vice versa. Though I have 2500 animal experience hours, and the minimum is 200, the required veterinary hours are 100 minimum, and that is what they prefer. Of which, I only have 30.
I was thinking, after I graduate, I may just take a year off to gain more experience in shadowing and interning. I could make up for the hours that I am lacking and then some, and I would also be able to work full time so that money will not be so big of an issue as it already is. Everyone is telling me that I should at least attempt to apply though. I don’t think they realize, however, that - despite me already telling them I will be taking 3 summer classes, shadowing at the veterinary clinic, and working at the same time this summer - I don’t believe I’ll have time to study for the GRE which I have not yet taken. And I would probably need to really push myself to meet the bare minimum of shadowing hours in the vet school requirements.
I could apply to vet school at the end of summer, but that would probably mean really pushing myself to study for the GRE and take as many shadowing hours as possible, both while still taking 3 classes and working. I don’t know if I can handle it. I would welcome a year break, but should I be finishing vet school as soon as possible? I really don’t know if I should be rushing to grow up lately… Last time I did with PAC, I regretted not taking time off to work for money. But I’m not sure if I’ll regret not finishing vet school immediately even more.
I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place, and if anyone has some advice for me, I’d easily welcome it.
Last semester I had the worse grades I’ve ever had. This semester I have 3 A’s so far and 2 B’s. I’m kind of stuck in a rut, however. I only have two finals, both for the classes with B’s. I could make A’s in these classes if I do well. But one of these finals is not mandatory, and if I take it, I would have to miss only 2/50 multiple choice questions to get an A in the class. I don’t know if I should take it… I have nothing left to lose besides time, but I am a person who very much values my time. I shall need to contemplate this further. I have a week to decide. I guess that would be plenty of time for study but…
I did something incredibly stupid the other day. For once, I was able to be the first to sign up for classes. I talked to an adviser and she let me know that I would be able to register for Summer classes on April 15th. So on April 15th I signed for my Summer classes: Fencing, Online Biomedical Writing. and Anatomy. Unfortunately, I did not know that I would also be able to sign for Fall registration at the same time. At the Alamo Colleges Summer registration and Fall registration were a month apart, so I assumed it was so here as well. And so I am course-less for the Fall thus far, until registration reopens for me on Monday. It’s likely, however, that the classes that are required for me are already taken… If I don’t get these classes for Fall then I will need to stay a whole extra year just to graduate. We’ll just have to see if the advisers take pity on my, I suppose, and force me into the classes as I’ve heard they are able to do, and I have asked them to already.
