Once again I fail at blogging within a reasonable interval of time. I’ll get the hang of it again. Someday.
I got flown out to Urbana-Champaign early this month to interview for the University of Illinois’ Medical Scholars Program. Like many of the others I’ve applied to, it combines two doctoral degrees, the MD and the PhD, into a 7-year program. About a week ago, they let me know that I was accepted. They pay for all the tuition and give me a living stipend— it’s really a very good deal. I’m not completely sure that it’s what I want to do, but it’s definitely at the top of my list. I’ll keep praying about it for sure. Alternatively, I could work here for a year before heading off to school, if they’ll let me defer admission. Or, maybe I’ll find work doing something else entirely. I just am not completely convinced that going to school for another seven years is exactly what I want to do at this point. I’m a little tired of it all.
Caitlin and I went on an adventure today after I read on FatWallet that Walgreens had Energizer rechargeables on sale. Usually they’re about $12 for 4. We drove to 5 Walgreens until we found packs on sale for $8 that had $2 coupons on them, then stacked that with the $5 rebate from Walgreens. We got 12 packs for the price of 1. Yay FatWallet ^_^
