Well, school's officially started back up.
So far, so good, although it's only the start of week 2!!
I have officially decided to change my discipline--don't panic--I'm not changing schools or majors, just getting out of epidemiology and into something a little more pronounceable--sociomedical sciences, which is less statistics based (which we alllll know is one of my least favorite subjects) and more anthropological/sociological/psychologically based.
Of course, it's not like WT where I just had to officially declare I was changing and POOF! it would happen. I have to petition epidemiology to "release" me and then apply for sociomedical sciences (SMS) to accept me. Epi's agreed to "release" me, now I'm just waiting to hear back from SMS. FINGERS CROSSED!!!
Of course in anticipation, in addition to the two core classes I have to take regardless of discipline, the other two courses are from SMS so that I don't waste anymore time.
I think this was the best decision, as I like all my classes--and I don't feel like I'm drowning, which I nearly did last semester. I still have tons of work--more reading actually, but no spending hours trying to grasp the basic concepts.
so for my sanity, can you please keep your FINGERS CROSSED this transfer is approved.
in case you're wondering what i'm taking this semester:
Intro to SMS
Social History of American Public Health
Ethics in American Public Health
Alright, speaking of, I have 3 chapters to read for tomorrow...
