"Thanks, Dana! That was very informative. International programs were never something I had really considered; my academic advisers never brought it up, so I just assumed I would apply only to domestic programs. But I know that times are tough right…"
"Thanks for your comments, Dana. I'm focusing on PhD programs, so right now I'm looking at UW-Seattle, UC San Diego, UC Irvine, and Johns Hopkins as my reaches, and then some safeties (haven't really decided on those yet.)"
"Lord willing, I'll finish up my BS in cell biology this spring. Before college, I had an inclination towards bioinformatics, but then somehow got it into my head that that field was all theory and would never produce clinical results (cancer…"
"I also don't particularly like CCM either. There are good bands/songs out there though. I love MercyMe, Rend Collective Experiment, Switchfoot (fantastic and played on secular stations occasionally), Flyleaf (girl singer that does have some…"

"Cantonese medical phrasebook that has an audio clip of the phrases in addition to the written form. (It has phrases the health-care provider would use, not the patient.) Might be a useful way to spend some free time.

A place for all the bakers out there. Come to discuss breads and the art of baking, e.g. things that have worked out or things that you just can't get to work. Open to the beginner and the artisan and everyone in between!
"I second StrongLifts. I've been doing this for about 4 months now, coming to the end of it as I can no longer maintain the incremental increases per session.
