    Congrats!

    I always read people sayin' not to start studying before you get there, BUT I started in May and I wish that I'd spent more time with getting a really solid understanding of some of the fundamentals. So, hopefully, I'm not raining on your parade by offering what I wish someone would have told me, which is, if you have the time and want to get a good foundation, start some review now. PM me if you'd like some suggestions on which topics.

    All the best.

    Anatomy is a good place to start. I didn't take it in undergrad and the amount of detail required to learn is much more than I expected. I would definitely get familiar with as many muscle names as possible. It may be a good idea to also get familiar with their innervation, actions, origin/insertion and blood supply. The Anatomy Coloring Book and Netter's Clinical Anatomy is a good combo for fun (coloring) and light reading (Netter's CA). Don't stress yourself out though, just get your feet wet.

    I just took a glance at your curriculum and it seems like the courses at St James are more discrete, which should make it a little easier to digest. (The Ross curriculum is set up a little differently, with courses from every subject integrated into 2 fundamentals blocks and organ systems; seems like information is coming from every direction.)

    For Embryo, I would say if you don't know mitosis and meiosis forward and backward, you might want to spend some time on it. The assumption is that you know the phases and can apply them seamlessly. For example, the word non-disjunction is given as the cause for Down Syndrome and you're just supposed to understand the mechanism--the how and why.

    Hopefully, that's not too overwhelming. Mitosis, meiosis and anatomy seem like good places to look at before Sem 1 given the curriculum structure at St. James.

    Congrats on your acceptance. Thanks for posting the info about what to review. I had a friend that is currently in a DO school tell me that I should not study anything. He told me to enjoy my free time while I have it.

    I'm going to review my stuff though either way.

    I'm definitely starting to study early, y not is my view. Especially all those anatomy terms, there are thousands of them and if you can at least get familiar with them now, when you see them again it will be helpful, at least that's how it works for me. Also there are like a million drugs, does anyone have any advise on medications we should memorize. I'm pretty sure we have know how to spell them to so that maybe a whole separate challenge.

    Without putting the meds into context, mechanism of action, adverse effects, its pretty much a waste of time. Have fun.
