this is match day 2004organized by Karen Cole M'04, Introduction by Jonathan Zelken M'07
There was something vaguely uncomfortable about standing amongst fourth year medical students on the eighth floor of Sackler that day. It was the feeling of unworthiness almost; that I was experiencing peoples’ lives resolving before my eyes, people I never met hitherto March 18, 2004.

lunch with dean rosenblattby Marie Condon M'06
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, having lunch with the dean. When I arrived at his 8th floor office, the receptionist kindly asked me to have a seat with the other two students, both second years. Decorated with books and scientific journals, his office was organized, orderly, and exquisitely neat. Although we waited only a few minutes, I developed a feeling of intimidation – much like a grammar school kid being sent to the principal’s office.

TUSM Wine CLUB: Annual tastingBy Matthew Kutcher M'07
Not willing to risk the re-establishment of normal hepatic function so soon after much valiantly fought Spring Break and post-Match endeavors, 13 stalwart Tufts medical students (and, allegedly, one particularly antisocial cat) assembled on the evening of March 29, 2004 at the luxury Château d'Ewall, in exotic Brookline Village, for the first Tufts Wine Club Annual Tasting. Greeting our approaching sommeliers-in-training from the third floor penthouse suite, sultry music wafted down from the hi-fi to combine with the delicate bouquet of freshly baked white chocolate, macadamia, and cranberry cookies.

fooseballersby Richard Wong M'07
It’s nearly 11am and an eerie silence permeates the student lounge. A twinge of a freshly scrubbed field and newly oiled rods mingles with the usual smells of plastic furniture and booby trapped lunches laced with the unknown funk of some wronged medical student. Then at the stroke of the hour a thunderous crack lightnings through the room, and like some Olympian tale gods race across the field in great contest, small gods…small plastic gods… with no pants…that like to play soccer.
NESL gets Cadavers firstJonathan Zelken M'07
The Dean of Students at New England School of Law (NESL) recently reported in a NESL newsletter that New England Law students will get “first dibs” on cadavers at the Tufts University School of Medicine beginning in August 2004. This will be the first time in twelve years that Dental students do not get first tracks in the anatomy lab, and the first time in many more that Law students will be required to learn human anatomy.
