What is Johnny up to? Is he still playing in the I-Leauge?

Why would that make somebody an idiot? Are they closing medical school next year?

If Kyle doesn't go this year, he likely is going to need to re-take prerequisites and reapply. He also will need to re-take the MCAT, scores from which generally are valid for three years.

Essentially, if Kyle doesn't go this summer, he likely will be starting from scratch and adding an additional 2-3 years to an already lengthy process.

dark clouds could write a pretty decent letter to his school.

"kyle is building relationships, blah blah blah. developing leadership skills, blah blah blah. promoting physical fitness and well being to a large group of onlookers blah blah blah. providing positive prosocial example of a well rounded individual blah."

I know that stuff, but the way I look at it, you can start medical school in your mid thirties. Lots of people do. Most people can't be competitive professional center backs into their 30s.

He's got a bird in his hand now. The bird in the bush is an MD.

Honestly you gotta envy the guy's problems. Which dream do I want to continue to chase? That's really all it comes down to.

If I could move away from medical school for a moment, I would like to point out that MLS has just flooded the market with players who are more than capable of succeeding at this level. New Jersey Sports Drinks alone put Bill Gaudette, Stephen Keel, Corey Hertzog, Jhonny Arteaga, and Jose Angulo out there. I don't think I exaggerate when I say that these players could likely make our team better.
