  1. I really wanted one, as my former dog got hit by a car 1 year before school started. I did my best to take time with the decision and although i know i would have cared for it well, i ultimately am glad i didn't get one. I had many nights when i got home from a non-negotiably long day of class and gave thanks I didn't leave a poor dog alone that whole time. It was easier to find housing for my rotations without the canine companion too. Now, when I'm settled into my new job and have a better idea of my schedule, i will be much more prepared to be a dog mom. But thats just me :) Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  2. I was in the same place as you. Like others have said, you could actually breech the agreement you have at your school by pushing too hard. If you have contacts, let them know your potential interest but then leave it to then to come back to you. Trust the process, be where your feet are and between your ears. You'll have the best chances of getting where you want to be by letting the bread rise before you pre-emptively toss it in the oven. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  3. Doable. You sound like you'd be a great candidate Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  4. I'll take it 2.5 weeks after graduation. But, I'll spend the first 5 days after graduation hosting visiting family. Hope I can find a way to enjoy the time with them and not be chomping at the bit the whole time... Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  5. Nice. Thanks for the info. Ranging from the screenshot, to study techniques, to packrat scores. My program usually has a very high pass rate, but I will be curious to see if that record falters this year... Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  6. Is that pretty standard for someone with your # of years experience, in family med in your area? Per the AAPA salary report? Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  7. I wish I had more insight into this question. Curious, do you have any idea if your hours will change structure? Will you start taking call? Will you spend any time in the O.R? These will all relate to potential salary adjustments as well. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  8. I am just beginning contact negotiations. As part of our school curriculum, we had a workshop on contract negotiations. It was precursory but I learned that tail insurance coverage is essential. Between that session, and trolling these forums, I feel adequately competent to make sound contractual decisions. It sounds like you might be in a similar boat. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  9. It sounds like a great offer. I'm interested to hear what you end up deciding. I have been 2 hrs and 45 minutes away from my partner and his kid during the didactic 18 months of school. We have worked out a way for it to work in our relationship, but knowing we only had to sacrifice like that for 18 ~ish months definitely helped. To do it for 3 years would honestly have possibly broken us. And 8 month old babies are so special! Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
