It's too small You can't go TTS on the bball with normal or wide shoulders. Feels like you're in a vise when you try to button it. I tried for several months to convince myself that it could work but had to move on. Anyone with a 54 they want to sell?
Doing a PhD because you want a top 10 residency is stupid. I've been there. Did research because I wanted a top radonc residency. Fucking hated research, fucking hated my life. If you love research that's another story. But consider that you're losing 2-3+ million of possible future earnings.
