USL/NASL Discussions USLSoccer.com :: USLFans.com :: TheCup.us :: NASL.com | Links | Link to US !
Article Posting Guidelines are spelled out here. Thanks
Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

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.
