We take a full course load, start a little bit of clinical work, and have step one of our boards exams looming over our heads. We take step one in April, but some people have already been studying for months. Your score on this test really . . .
Welcome to the new Fitting It All In! I'd been wanting a blog redesign for a while now - my last was almost three years ago - but my budget is next to nothing and lots of the designers I love are quite expensive!
