Introducing myself. My name is Kristin. I'm 21, I live in Bradenton, Florida. I'm currenty a sophomore undergrad. I'm transferring to Florida State University in January 2008, and with any luck have my Bachelor's in 2010. I'm hoping to attend LECOM in Bradenton, since that is where home is. I figure going to FSU will allow me to fulfill the obilgatory "leave home" thing, and then I can come back home. I'm interested in becoming an OB/GYN.

I originally considered becoming an MD, but I've found myself much more attracted to osteopathic medicine. My current PCP is a DO, and my first visit with her I was just so impressed about how much attention she paid to my overall health and how she wanted to start a plan of action for me to get healthy. My previous PCP was an MD, who everytime I brought a complaint to, just shoved the "You're too fat. Loose weight." line in my face. She's my inspiration for wanting to become a DO, and not just going the popular MD route.

I look forward to reading what everyone has to say. See y'all around.

Welcome and good luck in undergard.

There are a couple LECOM Bradenton people on here. I also know a few from college who also go there. I went to Florida Southern College in Lakeland.
