Virtual College Visits!

Thanks to a lot of lovely people, Virtual College Visits can officially start!

What is this post?

This post is a way to connect students who are unable to visit a certain college with someone who has visited that college.

Why?

There are so many things about a college that can’t be learned by looking at their website, or comparing statistics. Yet, at the same time, it is impossible for most students to visit every college that they’re interested in. This is a tool that will hopefully help bridge that gap!

How do I use this?

Think of a school that you’re interested in that you probably won’t be able to visit. Then, scan this (alphabetical) list of schools to see if it’s listed. If it is, congrats! The url(s) listed next to it belong to a person/people who have visited that school. They have contacted me saying that they are willing to talk about their experience at that school with other potential students. Feel free to shoot them a message explaining that you saw their url on this post and want to learn about x school (You should probably specify what school because most of the contributors have visited more than one school).

This is cool! Can I contribute?

Absolutely! Send me (appblrgirl) a message with the schools you would be willing to talk about with others. I will continue to update this post periodically.

Unfortunately because of school and various life things, I won’t be making any more updates to this post for the foreseeable future.

The school I want to visit isn’t on this list!

That sucks. Keep checking back as the list gets updated, you never know when your potential school will show up!

You can also message me with additional questions if you have any.

A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed so far, and good luck to all of you!

P.S. To avoid a large number of schools in the ‘U’ section, any schools starting with ‘University of’ have been reformatted. e.g. Virginia, University of

DOCTOR/MED STUDENT - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

So, one of the characters I’m currently roleplaying is a doctor and I found while trying to do research for her background that there are almost no guides to playing doctors or medical students. So, this is a guide that focuses on characters that are doctors or are studying to be doctors. It has a lot of information that could be used in a characters background and current situations.

I would like to say that I am not a doctor nor a medical student (I’m actually a film studies major rn), however, I did put a lot of research into writing this guide. I do have the help of google and two parents in the medical field. Also, I’m not American but this is the American system since 80% of characters are American and it was the system with the most information. However, there is a tiny bit of information about the Canadian system at the end.

If you find it helpful it would be nice if you could give a like or reblog! If you would like to request a guide or anything my ask is here

Galaxy's Aguilar unsure of his place on the team — and in the country
Miguel Aguilar never wanted to leave Mexico.
By Kevin Baxter

The LA Galaxy’s Miguel Aguilar, believed to be the first of 861,000 DACA recipients to become a professional athlete, could also become MLS’s first player to be deported. 

Aguilar is among the more than 861,000 undocumented immigrants who received protection from deportation under President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The executive order provides work permits for people brought to the U.S. as children, provided they meet certain conditions.

What it doesn’t provide is a path to lawful, permanent status in the U.S. And with President Trump aggressively expanding immigration enforcement policies, Aguilar is now apprehensive about his future.

“He’s targeting people like myself,” Aguilar said. “I think that’s grounds to be concerned.”

A first-round pick of D.C. United in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, Aguilar is believed to be the first DACA recipient to become a professional athlete. And though that temporary status allowed him to work, get a driver’s license and graduate from the University of San Francisco with a finance degree and a 3.7 grade-point average, if the new administration rescinds DACA, Aguilar could find himself the first MLS player to be deported.

“The field, for me, is a bit of a sanctuary,” he said. “Definitely at times watching the news and reading different stories and articles, it is something that gets me thinking.I get angry sometimes. There’s no empathy there, especially for kids.”

Of the four Aguilars who came across the border together in 2004, Miguel was the only one young enough to qualify for protection, even temporarily, from deportation. As a result he won’t speak publicly about the others, saying only that they remain in this country without legal status.But it’s clear the difficulties his single mother endured, first rescuing her children from blood-soaked Juarez, then trying to provide for them in a new country where she wasn’t welcome, has colored Aguilar’s world view.

“You’re telling me just because she was born on the wrong side of this border, that doesn’t make her a human anymore? That pisses me off,”  said Aguilar, who hasn’t been able to see his father since he left Mexico. “The fact that a piece of paper is more important than humility and helping each other? I can go on and on about it.“Just that fear of separation of families again. That’s my biggest issue with this whole immigration stuff.”

No, having an abortion isn’t linked to anxiety and depression

  • Abortion opponents want women to believe terminating a pregnancy won’t just lead to regret, but wider mental health issues as well.
  • Informational pamphlets distributed in nine states allege abortion is linked to anxiety and depression.
  • According to the Atlantic, a handout provided to patients in Texas suggests undergoing the procedure may lead to “depression or thoughts of suicide.”
  • A new study from the University of California, San Francisco sheds doubt on these claims.
  • “We found no evidence that women who have abortions risk developing depression, anxiety or low self-esteem as a result of the abortion,” said UCSF social psychologist M. Antonia Biggs in a press release.
  • In fact, after interviewing and observing 956 women, Biggs said her team found the opposite to be true. Read more

Medical woodblock prints from 19th-century - Japan

The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) maintains a collection of 400 health-themed woodblock prints from 19th-century Japan. The collection – which includes drug advertisements, illustrated instructions for treating and preventing contagious diseases, and visual guides to the human body – offers a unique look at Japanese medical knowledge in the late Edo and early Meiji periods.

Illustration : 1885 “Ten realms within the body”  by
Utagawa Kuniteru III    三代  歌川国輝 active from 1886 to 1895

Illustration : 1880 “Pregnancy guide“ by Hamano Teisuke

IIlustration : 1881 “Pregnant women playing in summer heat (5 heads, 10 bodies)“ by Utagawa Kunitoshi 歌川国利  (1847-1899)

Lesbian History:

Diane Sabin

  • lesbian feminist activist in the San Francisco Bay Area
  • founded Sabin Chiropractic, a community clinic in the Castro
  • does activist work to improve the health of lesbians and the LGBT community through representation in the larger health care institutions and research
  • Executive Director of the Lesbian Health & Research Center (LHRC) at the University of California, San Francisco, Associate Director for the National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health
  • co-founded 100 Lesbians and Our Friends, a lesbian philanthropic community initiative. The group held periodic meetings modeled after lesbian pot luck or CR groups, designed to re-educate women about the power of philanthropic giving. The philosophy was that girls are miseducated about their relationship to money from early youth and needed to rethink how they used their economic power and how they might support each other
  • serves on the board of directors for the National Center for Lesbian Rights
  • responsible for the production of the early San Francisco Pride stage in the 1980s

BONUS: has been with her partner Jewelle Gomez since 1993, married in 2008

Parents, mentors, curiosity inspire passion for science

For Black History Month, we asked NSF Graduate Research fellows “Why a career in science?” Here are more of their answers.

“I study new technologies for making fertilizers and disinfectants from human urine. Why? Because making value out of urine can avoid water pollution and increase access to toilets. I use electrochemistry and ion exchange to capture nitrogen in useful forms. Science has always been exciting to me because of the model of asking and figuring out how to answer questions. I am thankful for lots of mentors and opportunities that pointed me to where I am today: combining my love for problem solving with improving the health of overlooked people and our environment.”

– William A. Tarpeh,  Ph.D. student, Department of Environmental Engineering, University of California, Berkeley


“Early in my scientific career, the NSF’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) supported my research project at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) identifying pharmacological regulators of cilia length. This experience inspired me to join the Physiology program at Yale, which allows me to pursue similar interests and apply my basic science training to a medically relevant disease.”

– Lindsey Stavola, Ph.D. candidate, Yale School of Medicine

Palestinian children in Gaza are exposed to more violence in their lifetime than any other people, any other children, anywhere in the world. If you look at children right now who are 10 years old, they’ve been through Cast Lead in 2008 and 2009, the invasion in 2012 and now the invasion and destruction in 2014, in addition to the siege. If you look at the statistics, for example, even before Cast Lead, 80 percent of Palestinian children in Gaza have witnessed some sort of violence against them, a friend or a family member. And now you’re getting to the point where probably close to 99 percent of children in Gaza are being exposed to a level of violence where they have seen family members be killed, murdered, burned alive. There’s nothing like the levels of traumatic exposure that any child in the world has ever been exposed to on a chronic and daily basis.
—  Dr. Jesse Ghannam, clinical professor of psychiatry and global health sciences at the University of California at San Francisco School of Medicine
"Many families would love to adopt the baby".

Here is my response to people who suggest that pregnant women, under any circumstances, should carry out a pregnancy because ‘many families would love to adopt that baby’.

A 2014 study by the University of California, San Francisco found that hospital charges for an uncomplicated vaginal delivery ranged from $3,296 to $37,227, depending on the hospital. This is not including the price of ultrasounds and doctors visits leading up to the birth. Completing a pregnancy could cost tens of thousands of dollars to someone uninsured. A woman could be in debt for the rest of her life for having a baby she didn’t even want. Now let’s say a woman was raped and impregnated. This woman could end up in unbearable financial debt for the rest of her life that will be an extra reminder of a horrible trauma.

Now, there are currently 400,000 children in foster care without families. No, 'many families’ would NOT love to adopt this hypothetical baby. This baby would likely end up in the brutal foster care system, living in horrible circumstances where they may be on the receiving end of abuse, and where they will likely have no guidance to help them create a financially stable life for themselves upon being kicked out of foster care.

So when you say women should not be able to have an abortion early into pregnancy, you are saying a bundle of cells is more important than a woman being in immense debt for the rest of her life. This bundle of cells is so important to you, until it becomes an actual child who will have no family and have a life full of hardships. You care more about CELLS than you care about REAL, LIVE PEOPLE.

THIS is an issue. THIS is a problem.

So many of you are so incredibly naive when it comes to the right to have an abortion. You all claim that pro-choicer’s are savages who want fetuses ripped violently from the womb at 6 months. NOBODY FEELS THIS WAY. THIS IS NOT A REAL THING. Late-term abortions are only legal in situations where the child is severely disabled and will not have a chance. IT IS THE HUMANE THING TO DO. Should a woman, who is told at 6 months into pregnancy that her baby will die within moments of birth, with their brain on the outside of their skull, be forced to remain pregnant for the next three months, dragging out her terrible loss? Absolutely not. Doctors induce a pregnancy, and allow the woman to give birth to her child and hold it. Or they inject the baby through the womb to stop its heart and then remove it. NOBODY IS TEARING APART LIMB FROM LIMB A LIVING BABY. And NOBODY DECIDES AT 6 MONTHS THEY NO LONGER WANT A BABY! Late term abortions are done to WANTED babies. DO NOT SHAME GRIEVING MOTHERS FROM A DECISION THEY HAD TO MAKE.

Please, open your eyes. Educate yourselves. Do research. Listen to the DOCTORS who are sharing this information, who are far more educated than you on the subject.

Our people are living in poverty, our people cannot get jobs regardless of tens of thousands spent on degrees, our people cannot afford the healthcare they need, our soldiers are being sent to die in illegal wars, our people are paying high taxes while the rich are paying less than the poor, our people are being jailed for smoking a harmless plant while rapists get parole. THESE ARE ISSUES. THIS IS WHAT MATTERS.

The story follows Spock from his own days as a cadet at Starfleet Academy to the ‘present day’ when he’s Kirk’s first officer and the Enterprise is on its five-year mission. Essentially, the story of Spock’s first real love followed by the story of him finding the love of his life. Ad astra per aspera.
