How to Survive Semester 3

May 22, 2009

Although I promised to pen this post two weeks ago, I’ve hesitated, not just because in 4th semester you have to hit the ground running, but because, having passed 3rd semester by the skin of my teeth, I might not be the best source of advice. There are few concrete things I can point to that caused me to struggle so much with microbiology and, other than studying more diligently and not choking on Mini I, I can’t really think of what I could’ve done to avoid the difficulty I encountered.

As usual, I tried to glean some sort of greater meaning out of the race because each semester is like a mini-marathon. Will I be able to do better than I’ve done so far when the scores come in at the end of the term? I certainly hope so. This semester has really been kicking my butt.
