#1 Son is in the midst of studying for the Step 1 exam, which is given after the second year of medical school. He says he is studying 10 – 12 hours a day and working harder than he ever has in his life.

I sent this to him. Because I am weird like that.


Note: this is actually more applicable the the exams in his courses than the Step 1, I think (I hope, for his sake); his professors often seem to delight in asking ridiculously complicated questions. This is proved by the fact that sometimes the curve yields a 40% as a passing grade. But the Step 1 is a standard national exam taken by all medical students so is [probably] not subject to the quirks of individual professors.

Let's all keep our fingers crossed for him, m'kay? The exam is Monday, June 21.

    Oh man. Those exams sucked. They called them something else when I went through, but they still sucked. Best wishes to him, I’m sure he’s a smart boy and it sounds like he’s working a lot harder than most.
