Welcome

Welcome

I suppose it would be appropriate to introduce myself properly... HOWDY! My name is Chace, I am a Biomedical Sciences major. But more importantly I am the loudest and proudest member of the Fightin' Texas Aggies class of 2012. Whoop!  One week down, only fourteen and a half left until I complete my undergraduate degree here at the wonderful Texas A&M University. It is a bittersweet feeling. While I am very ready for the next phase of my life, the amount of things I have learned while being in college, both in class and outside of it, has been, well, life changing.  As I'm sitting here in immunology with my good friends Alex,  Lauren, and Greg, struggling to understand what in the world Dr. Omran is talking about I'm still scratching my head over what I learned in my physiology class this morning: that the white blood cells in our bodies travel the distance of twice around the world in a single day... That's 2000 miles per hour! Too much!  Anyway, for my first blog, I've decided it would be helpful for those of you interested in entering into the Biomedical Sciences undergrad program at the A&M vet school, to ask my friends what advice they would give to an entering/prospective student. Greg says: "Study. The "college experience" will come, but studying is more important", and Alex says: "If you want something work for it with everything you've got. Never let anything else get in your way so that you don't ever have to look back and wonder, 'What if?'".  Considering that both of these gentlemen are nearing their way towards medical school, I would say that they, like the rest of our classmates, truly understand what kind of dedication and perseverance they require to not walk, not jog, but RUN after their dreams. Like a horse in a full out gallop-not looking back.  Nothing is holding them back except for the wind they feel against them due to the aggression of their sprint.  But their drive is stronger than the wind, and it is what keeps them going. We here in BIMS must work together to get through. Finally, my advice to all of you is to explore deeply in what it is that you truly want.  What do you want to accomplish? Why? And how are you going to get there? And most importantly, is this something that you are REALLY willing to work for and sacrifice for to accomplish? I look forward to meeting any of you prospective students and the parents of prospective students.  BIMS has opened my mind to a world that I am not only incredibly amazed actually exists, but simply blessed to be a part of.  If you are interested in joining this family, I do not think you will be disappointed. Alright, that is all for today.  As my mother would say:

Over and out!
