Princeton Review Guest Speaker: At our next meeting we will be having a guest speaker come and talk to you guys about medical school, applications, tips for the MCAT, etc. This will be a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about getting into any health schools, so we encourage everyone to come with questions.

FS T-Shirt: It’s not too late to put your name down for a Flying Samaritan T-Shirt if you didn’t get a chance to at the meeting! It was designed by our very own member, Matt Manglal-lan, and it looks amazing! If you would like one, respond to this email with your preferred shirt size. The shirts are unisex size so most likely closer to men’s. If you are a girl and usually wear small/xsmall, put down “youth size” instead. The cost will be $15 and please pay as soon as you can.
