    Medical School Interviews

    I'm very sorry for the spotty reporting the last couple weeks. I am currently in Dallas, Texas interviewing at UT-Southwestern Medical School. Last week I spent four days in Houston because I interviewed at UT Medical Branch (Galveston).

    Although I will blog about the schools, my likes and dislikes, and such, I WILL also blog about my volunteer effort at the Astrodome. My friend, Matt, who runs the blog at Action at a Distance and goes to law school at the University of Houston, went with me. We spent six hours helping evacuees at the Reliant Center while they waited in line for FEMA.

    The experience was one that benefitted me more than those I served. I had some intimate experiences talking with a group of Vietnamese from Orleans Parish. All of this will be forthcoming in a day or so. Until then, keep up the giving of aid to victims of Katrina, wish me luck on further interviews (UT-Houston and Baylor coming up), and pass along anything interesting.

    P.S. I'm still working on this Haloscan stuff, so comment using the blogger comments. I really wanted Haloscan only for the trackbacks. Thanks.

    Good luck with the interviews Triet. I'm not sure what happened with my blogging. I still can't post my original post that I wrote, and I had to post the other stuff on my laptop instead of my desktop. Anyway, I hope all goes well with your interviews for medical school. Have fun in Texas, and may the Buddha be with you. :-)
