We're telling the parents tomorrow. This will be the 1st on his side and the 3rd on mine. We're married and it was planned. But boy am I nervous, feel like my parents will look at me like I'm 16 and pregnant. I'm almost 30 and married.

2022.01.28 18:39 TheMarvelisa A story of hope!
I'm an older non-trad student who is almost 30. I currently have 10 US MD interview invites, 6 acceptances, 1 WL offer and 3 schools I am waiting to hear back from. I never thought I'd be in this position and I've shed many tears of happiness throughout the cycle. This post is about my story of persevering through setbacks.
If I took every piece of advice I read or was told on Reddit or SDN, I wouldn't be in the position I am in today. So I want to provide some advice and share my story to hopefully inspire some of you who may be in the position I was in to keep going. You can do it!
Back in 2019, I applied to medical school. I rushed to take the MCAT, so I could get into medical school before my 27th birthday. Looking back this sounds ridiculous, but honestly this is why I rushed my app. I felt old and that my dream of becoming a physician was disappearing in front of me (yes, I know dramatic).
I received a 502 MCAT score and 0 interviews. I also applied to a small number of schools, which was another mistake. A lot of the school's admissions offices were rude to me when I asked questions about my application, but one took the time to do a rejection review with me. To this day, I am grateful for that senior admissions advisor who took the time to do this because without her, I'm not sure I would have been successful as I am today (more details on this later).
On the contrary,based on the advice I received off of Reddit, SDN and my post-bacc pre-health advisor I was told with a 3.5 cGPA (multiple Cs) and a 502 MCAT score I could never apply to a US MD school. Even with a re-take, a 502 is too big of a red flag and I felt it was impossible to achieve my goal of attend an MD school (Based on the geographical locations my partner was willing to move for me to attend medical school and my career aspirations going to an MD school felt like the best fit for me). The advice and what i was reading online made me feel constrained and stupid for getting a "poor" score. Time and time again I was told "you're wasting money if you want to apply MD again" or "your score will never be competitive enough". It also didn't help that I didn't see any success stories either causing my anxiety to only increase.
But I couldn't give up on my dream that easily, so I put all my faith in the one admissions advisor who gave me hope.
Here is the advice I was given:
1)Medical schools want to be confident that their students will succeed in a rigorous environment. Do not only tell schools this, but prove it. There's no single correct path. You can show them you will succeed in undergrad, grad school, doing a DIY post-bac, PhD, formal grade enhancement program, retaking the MCAT, etc.
2)Set realistic expectations by looking at MSAR and see what type of applicants are accepted at specific schools. Look at the range of MCAT and GPA scores students had. This will give you an indication if the school you're interested in is willing to accept a student with lower stats. Typically a 3.6+ and 510+ are what's considered competitive, but some schools have extremely high stats for applicants they accept.
3)Do activities you enjoy and that provide a holistic view of why you want to do medicine. It's quality over quantity. Don't do something to just check a box. Try to do things that can show what your ultimate vision is ( ex. Serving those who are marginalized)
4)Share personal details about yourself. Treat your personal statement as a story and vividly show the reader events in your life that allowed you to realize why you want to become a physician. Engage in story telling throughout your app! Not just the PS.
5)Be open about the difficulties you faced throughout life whether personal or professional if it explains poor grades, MCAT scores, or other negative things related on your app. Don't be afraid to select disadvantaged on your app and write a separate essay even if you are no longer disadvantaged.
6)Not everything has to be medically related. Do whatever volunteer activity you want to do! Do whatever job you want to do before medicine if you have to support yourself financially. Just be sure to share what unique skills you can bring to the table.
7)Adcoms like persistence and people who don't give up. If you show drastic improvements some red flags can be forgiven. They gave me specific outages on my app.
My improvements while continuing to work full-time:
1)In 2019, I had been out of school for 5 years and my MCAT score was a 502. I was told these were both red flags and that I needed to prove I can still handle an academically rigorous environment. I took a year to study for my MCAT retake while taking 5 post-bacc classes. I received a 511 on my retake, brought up my cGPA to a 3.59 and sGPA to 3.62.
2)I rewrote my whole app and focused on story telling. I openly shared my families financial strain, the patriarchal environment I grew up in, poor public school education and losing my mom. I was open. The most open I've ever been about sharing my issues. It was difficult to do, but I truly think it provided me with the foundation I needed to talk about all the hurdles I faced and why they've allows me to become a better person.
3)I made sure my app had a theme. I am extremely passionate about wanting to improve the health of my community and equality. I focused on doing more volunteer activities to reflect that passion (even none medically related ones) such as baking goods for the homeless, mentoring a low income high school student, serving seniors meals, volunteering at a free clinic. I put 100% of my heart and free time into these activities. In total this added around 350 extra volunteer hours on my appX
4)In addition to my previous 300 scribe hours on my previous app, I also shadowed physicians for 60 hours in-person and for 100+ hours virtually. I also did Brainterns and found physicians to interview.
5)I found all new letter writers who knew the more recent version of me and could talk about my current strengths. This is important because you want your letter writers to be up to date. I made sure to have one talk about my soft skills, another to talk about my academic skills and another to talk about my analytical research skills. You want your recommendation letters to be all encompassing and it is completely okay to ask your letter writers to focus on specific topics.
Please feel free to DM if you want more specifics. At one point I felt extremely lost and want to provide a helping hand now that I've gone through this.

2022.01.28 18:39 dantheillest What are some phrases we use that don’t make sense anymore?
Like, for example, ‘filming’. Nobody uses film anymore but when we’re out biking and record it on our phones we still call it filming, even though it’s all digital.
Just wondering if there are any other terms or phrases like this that just don’t make sense to use anymore but we still use.

2022.01.28 18:39 IVBIVB For non-marathon'ers, how would a smart watch (or foot pods) change your next run?
Ignoring the "which brand of watch" question, i'm trying to understand how I'd use the info from my watch or a foot pod to change future runs. I like running but I'm no marathon'er. I understand how those of you who are far beyond my fitness level can benefit, and if using this will help me improve fitness/speed/etc that's awesome.
It is motivational to see my pace, my distance, various PRs, and I've used that as "fuel" to keep going during a run. IE "Whoa i'm
But other than motivation for PRs, what would you say is the benefit of using a smart watch or foot pods during runs? Just pace/distance?

Would TiviMate work on that? I don't think the store works on that device so I'd have to sideload.
