Woah! An entire day without work and without being behind? What will I do with this gift?
|Have a party? (Wait for it...kudos to you if you get it) |

|Jump up and down? Probably not, my knees hurt.|
Instead, here is how my day actually shaped up:
1. A six year old girl is brought in for evaluation of short stature. She is of normal intelligence, but upon further work-up is found to have a coarctation of the aorta, a single kidney, short fourth metacarpals and widely spaced nipples. Karyotype is most likely to show:
Here is an example of a question from our exam today:
|Pedigree from here|
If C10 carries the Cystic Fibrosis gene, and A14 is a rainbow unicorn, what is the probability N4 will buy a red car?
Alright, maybe I exaggerate. But not by much.
I hope this isn't a pattern.
PS. As an aside, we are the first med school class that does not have to *purchase* practice exams. You heard me correctly. Previous classes had to pay $40 for practice exams last year (which went to charity). As if my tuition isn't enough. We calculated it out, and our entire class is paying $17,000 per lecture. But no practice exams for med students. I can just imagine last year: "Oh man, should I pass my exam or eat this week? Decisions, decisions." Is it just me, or should our school be forced to attend our ethics class?
