This is the future

This post is not very timely since Marty McFly went to the future on July 11th, 2012, and it's now the 17th, but I thought I should post it anyway.  Where has the time gone?  Great 80's flick except that we were all supposed to be scooting around in flying cars with our kids wreaking havoc on hovercraft skateboards.  Stupid lying movie.

My own future seems just as uncertain as did that of Marty McFly's.  After taking the MCAT on the 14th, I have had mixed feelings.  I'm sure my score will not be what I would like.  I was devastated when I left.  I've since come to terms with it.  Worse case scenario I have to retake it.  It's not the end of the world.  My family loves me.  I'm at peace.

As far as the MCAT went, there was a part of both the physical sciences section and the biological sciences section where I just stared blankly at the screen hoping upon hope that somehow an angel would appear before me and guide me to the correct answer.  Alas, no such angel appeared.  I was on my own.

The verbal section was okay I thought.  Those who took the exam the same day as I did have commented on how "easy" the verbal section was.  I think many of those same people will be dismayed by their score.  Sure it wasn't like reading something in a foreign language, yet the sheer length of the passages, and the complexity of some of the questions will certainly curb the enthusiasm of many, including me.

So what am I to do now?  I don't need to feverishly study random physics equations.  I don't have to balance chemical reactions, nor do I need to worry about stereochemisty.  I decided to read.  Yes read.  And not some convoluted textbook.  I have decided to read a book I have been referred to on more than one occasion: "The House of God."  And what a doozy of a book it is too!  I am thoroughly enjoying every scintillating page.  It is candy for premedical and medical students.  It shows that medicine isn't really what you find on "Grey's Anatomy."  And it's awesome.  I will review it in more depth later as I am currently but halfway through.

For those who have yet to take the MCAT, take heart.  You know the material.  Just show them.  To those who are done with the MCAT, find something you enjoy doing and do that.  Live a little.  You deserve it.  I know I do.


  1. I took the MCAT June 21, 2012......I am still waiting on my scores also. Take a break...do what you enjoy and don't think about the MCAT for awhile. I left my test site completely devastated also.

    1. Waiting for the score can be tough. I'm really trying not to think about it. I'm reading and playing a little poker to keep my mind off it. I really need to finish up my essays though... I hope you get better news than you anticipate. I'm rooting for you Tom!

  2. All the best for tomorrow.

    And I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright.

  49. Hi, my name is Ben Feldheim and I am a writer based in Chicago.

    I have been looking for people to participate in a story about medical students who chose the path later in life than people commonly expect. Would you be interested in talking to me about what led to your decision? I'd also like to delve into what challenges you faced then and now, how you took on such a professional path at the point in life you did and advice you have for people interested in doing the same.

    The story would be for the Dollar Shave Club Blog: http://blog.dollarshaveclub.com/. The site recently has expanded their editorial side to include staffers from more traditional publications to produce content of greater quality.

    You can become more familiar with my past experience and writing samples on my online portfolio at benfeldheim.com. I can be reached at bafeldheim@gmail.com. My assigning editor is Panio Gianopolous, and he can be reached at panio.gianopoulos@gmail.com if you have any questions for him.

    Please let me know if you are interested. Thank you.
