Reading, Blogging & Expanding your Horizons

Updated: Jun 15, 2022

Professional healthcare students can experience many difficulties on their journey. We've all encountered embarrassing moments. There may have been a time when you've procrastinated studying for an exam, spent Friday night in the library or nearly slept through the 7:00am biology exam.





Let's dive into the world of blogging. Blogging is a great source to understand the experiences of other people. However, we have mixed experiences with bloggers or influencers. It's easy to show beautiful notes, designer scrubs and inspiring quotes about your goals. It can be difficult to invest your time and energy in improving the experience of a group.


Pay attention to accounts that appear to exploit the audience's desperate desire to enter their dream school. There's a big difference between accounts that encourage healthy study habits, share exam prep tips and inspire you to keep going and those that just promote a product or gadget to help you get into your school of choice.


You will ultimately be responsible for the hard work required to get accepted.

You have a ton on your plate, from a tight schedule to study stress from the standardized exams like the MCAT, DAT, PACAT, and GRE. We're here to motivate you. There are also a few bloggers doing the same.
