When I started this blog I wanted it to have forward movement, something that each post was built upon. Until now it really hasn’t, though to be honest neither has my life. I have been blowing in the wind, following the current, however you want to say it. But I don’t want that to be my life. I don’t just want to follow the current and cross my fingers hoping that my life goals just work out. I want to do everything in my power to help them happen. I realize now that even if I do all that it won’t always happen, but I still need to give it my best shot.

So I am going to use this blog to hold myself accountable in my quest for admission into medical school this time. I am retaking the MCATs and redoubling my efforts on applications. To work on improving my personal statement I am using the book Essays that will get you into Medical School. I’m planning to post some of their free-writing exercises and other ideas.

To study for the MCATs I am using ExamKrackers along with the 101 Passages in Verbal Reasoning and 16 Mini MCATs. I will also periodically be using practice exams from AAMC.

So here goes. A new effort on the medical school application. The old Lisa is back. You didn’t accept me this time? I will go away and come back so amazingly improved that there will be no doubt about my acceptance the next time.

Study Away!
