Dating a third year resident
Considering that there are at least 12 people in my class who are engaged (Class of 2017) and even more in other classes here at USCSOMG, I’ll attempt to answer some of the most common questions I’ve heard about engagement during medical school Well, in my class (Class of 2017, 54 students), I count 14 classmates who are currently married, and another 12 of us who are engaged. And there are a whole lot of other people who are in dating relationships.These statistics could be an abnormality unique to my class, but I know there are many students in the other classes here at USCSOMG who are dating, engaged, or married, too.
Pretty much your last shot at making up for any deficiencies in your application. I made a schedule (well actually I used my friend’s schedule) – an incredibly ambitious schedule. I am currently on day 6 of the schedule but day 24 of the 28 days I allotted to study.So maybe dating during medical school isn’t as unusual as you might think….Well, I’d say it’s all about making time for what matters to you.After the 1.5 days I wasted thinking about it, I got my act together. The single person’s dilemma in medical school: 1: date and be labeled as “irresponsible” and less motivated than the married types who go home to ready- made meals and folded laundry, or 2: don’t date and waste your twenties/thirties. The author’s point is in line with what you are saying.The last 2 days I have spent studying in the library have been the most productive days so far and, looking back, I probably should have never starting the Step 2 dating thing. Find a balance between prioritizing studying and dating – easier said than done.Moral: These are the 2 most important tests in medical school and it is definitely not worth it to start dating someone new during this time.

Please learn from my mistake and, if you are going to date during Step studying, lay the ground rules and lay them hard. Don’t forfeit all of your hard work in medical school for a few useless dates. I studied Psychology and Spanish at the University of Texas at Austin and spent a semester studying in Argentina.
If you got into medical school, chances are that you’re a pretty type-A, organized, diligent person already. Don’t worry, you’ll be fine – it’s the same time-management skills you’ll be using day in and day out during medical school.
Personally, I like to use my wedding planning time as a reward for getting through scheduled study time for the day.
There are several students at our school who have children.
I think most of them treat medical school as a job, and they make sure that they leave by dinnertime every day.
In my 1st and 2nd years I organized and taught a class in medical school to fellow students called Public Health and Medicine.
