Happy Medical Monday, y'all! Last week BF and I drove to LA to take Step 2 CS. It was actually pretty tough! You see 12 standardized patients (actors pretending to have things wrong with them) in about 8 hours, which was exhausting. Props to primary care docs who do it day in and day out, because it takes a lot out of you. Anyway, I'm pretty sure we passed, especially considering U.S. med students have a 97% pass rate on the first time taking it. It's nice to have that over with!
We were lucky enough to visit some friends while in LA!

Now I just need to sort out my personal statement. I spent 6 hours working on it yesterday, and now I have my second draft, but it still needs a lot of work. I'm meeting with some of my OB/Gyn advisors this morning, which I'm nervous about because what's left of my confidence doesn't need to be beaten down anymore, but hopefully they can point me in the right direction.
