New blog just for med school interviewees

It’s getting close to that time of the year… and with the 2010 Olympics, UBC has its interviews 1 month earlier than last year. I remember I had my interview on March 1st, so I was fortunate enough to get a relatively undisturbed Christmas break.

Since reactivating this blog earlier this month, I’ve taken a renewed interest in it. I noticed that traffic to this blog has mainly been driven by new readers to med school related posts. While I love getting new visitors, I can’t help but think that perhaps I should manage these posts separately from the other stuff on this blog. Although there’s nothing too personal on this blog, some posts that are interesting to friends and family are probably just noise for people interested in med school applications.

So I’ve decided to migrate my med school application related stuff to a new blog:, where I will continue to update on this topic and post practice interview prompts that I come up with, among other things that I think will interest this particular audience.

For everyone else, there will probably be no discernible difference here for the time being so don’t worry yet 😛

Christmas mini-concert + World AIDS Day = A great day of singing!

As I mentioned earlier, I found out I could sing (still haven’t been kicked out) a Capella in med school. Today we performed in front of a big audience, first with the Med Choir, singing “Christmas Angel” and “Do You Hear What I Hear?”. The sopranos definitely wowed the audience big time…

Then we – the Auscultations – sang the two pieces that we worked on for a couple of months.

The first was “12 Days of Christmas Confusion”:

Version 1: (laughter by Tina)

Version 2: (better sound quality)

And then we sang our rendition of Imagine for World AIDS Day, followed by a big march to the SUB:

I think we not only made lots of noise, but also raised a bit of money too!

Overall, it was a great day!

On a side note, Tina has not seen the classic SNL short: Dick in a Box, so I asked her to preview it this morning before she came to our mini-concert. Some homework is required to appreciate our song in its entire glory.

She would not comment on her experience with said video as of now.
