Excuse me while I writhe around on the floor in astonishment. I got an A in Biology, which was unexpected to say the least (photosynthesis and I, we don't get along). C in Chem, but I expected that and am merely grateful that the ordeal is over.

Whoa.

Wow! Congrats! I think when I was in school I just about got a C in bio.

I know the feelings of being glad it's over. I was so glad to have school over for me. Makes the rat race seem almost nice.

I'm so sorry that you're shocked you did well in Biology.

Yay! Congrats! One more step on the road to Ambar's Wellville, eh?

Happy Holi-Daze.

I have here on my desk a 2004 cat calendar with guess who's red and white litter on at least 2 months?

Drop me a line if you'd like it.

Grades can only mean one thing ---

So when did you go back to school? Where are you enrolled? Are you doing an undergraduate degree, or a graduate one? What department are you in?

I thought that only graduate students worked with fruit flies...

Well, whether or no, the particular junior college I enrolled in last semester (Los Medanos) has a required experiment-research-and-report project on a basic monohybrid cross in Drosophila. (It may or may not be relevant that this particular JC also has a strong pre-nursing program, including actual cadaver work.)

I decided I want to apply to vet school, so I am going back and picking up all the biology and chemistry that I ignored earlier in favor of math and physics. I'm currently enrolled as a junior in Biology at CSU Hayward, but the school and the major are fairly irrelevant, as the immediate goal is to knock off UC Davis Vet's application requirements (which interestingly, do not include having a bachelor's.)

Wow. This Junior College that you have discovered seems to have a better science program than many 4-year-schools that I've heard of.

Very interesting that the UC Davis program doesn't require having a bachelor's degree. Any idea how many people apply and how many are accepted? Would you want to move up to Davis? It's not the wasteland that it was a decade ago, but it's still pretty ... rural and conservative.

So would the vet be a career change, or something to do on the side?
