What are you going to do now that Moody Gardens is closed till June 1st (provided we have a regular graduation)? And also, what does a virtual graduation look like? Would it be students present and parents watch only? Or we all just watch from home?
Meeta Kanwar
20:29
When will a final decision be made about graduation?
Incognito
20:30
Will we be refunded the $170 graduation fee that was part of our tuition if it was virtual?
Alyssa Shaffner
20:36
What kind of virtual platform? Surely there will be a lot of people wanting to tune in?
Darcy
22:36
Would the students be able to vote on if they wanted to do a virtual ceremony or not?
Alyssa Shaffner
23:08
Is it required if it ends up being virtual? As I know the in person one is normally required.
Norma Perez
23:30
your 2 class presidents were in the meetings
Muhammad S.
23:47
with possible early graduation, will we be able to get our diploma and final transcript early as well?
Amanda Price
26:28
Since it is unlikely we need to do anything else on campus at this point, when will we be returning badges? And do you see any reason why those of us moving away (especially out of the state) can't leave town permanently sooner rather than later now?
Michael
27:37
For emergency medicine, you had mentioned the possibility of Blackboard Quizzes, are these still happening, and if so when will they be up, and what will the format be?
Megan White
32:30
Is financial aid available for zoom appointments for senior students who want advice on loan consolidation?

ACLS and BCLS
Alyssa Shaffner
36:40
Not a question. Just a plug so people are aware… Wellness Chat with Faculty—> Mondays at 5pm until mid-May as a way to connect, debrief, ask questions, etc. Zoom link is on the Facebook pages. If you would like it and don’t have Facebook, let me (Alyssa) or Allison Popovich know.
Megan Carey
36:55
How do we get things notarized for programs?

Robert Thompson

Saghi
39:09
dean’s letter of good standing?
Kara Jencks
39:47
what if we submitted it to office of registrar before that form was sent out?
BRITTANY GERGEN
39:49
In regards to final transcript, diplomas, and other documents that residency programs need, if we send an email requesting those documents now what is the process we need to take to email you to send those documents to them?
vcarmich
39:50
Might check back with their programs regarding notarizing, as well. One student emailed me and their program had mentioned to them that if they had problems getting something notarized that they would work with them.
BRITTANY GERGEN
41:06
Thank you!
Kara Jencks
41:43
what if we submitted it to office of registrar before that form was sent out?
vcarmich
42:06
The original link from Dr. Levine is for all forms except the transcripts. Leila Robinson emailed the class today, as Dr. Perez mentioned, with details about transcript requests needing to be done through MyStar. Refer to that one sent today.
Megan Carey
42:20
Me too, Ladybug. Me too
melr
42:44
If we have changed our name and want that to be reflected on our diploma when we graduate who should we contact?
Kara Jencks
42:46
Is that even if a person already told me they would take care of us and let us know when it was done?
vcarmich
43:06
Leila Robinson's group
Meeta Kanwar
43:40
What are the consequences of not attending graduation?
Megan Carey
44:38
I began requesting my transcript today and it stated that they would not be mailed until 6/26 if we have all grades/degree included. We need to have them before we start, so could you clarify the timing?
Norma Perez
48:24
Link to Enrollment Request Form: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=bSXve9uFJkWnLTGuolRoUq3Kv1DK-5ZLtMB8VKEaQIhUMEFXTURSTTEyRVMyTUVFSTU2U0lDTlFVTCQlQCN0PWcu

I don't know if this has been addressed, but was commencement covered in our dues and if we do not have a commencement ceremony in person and proceed to go virtual will we be compensated
Megan Carey
49:08
To clarify…the transcript request says 6/24/19 idk why. But I thought it said 2020 so maybe it’s not a problem.
Sam
49:40
Has any thought been given to the possibility of inviting the current MS4s to return to Galveston next year to walk at commencement?
Alyssa Shaffner
51:50
Would we have our own ceremony or would it be joint with 2021?
Alyssa Shaffner
53:04
Cuz joint would take away from them…
Muhammad S.
55:19
do you have plans for more town halls?
BRITTANY GERGEN
56:21
Is there a process where medical students can go to through to gain more experience before starting residency? For instance I am going into EM, so I would like to have some additional experience working in the ER
BRITTANY GERGEN
56:39
At least for UTMB
BRITTANY GERGEN
57:38
thank you
Norma Perez
58:26
my hair isn't blowing but there is a ncie breeze
melr
58:36
If the president decides to cancel graduation next few week for example and then things get better in May, would you guys consider still having a live graduation on our original date? Or would you just cancel indefinitely.
Alyssa Shaffner
59:11
Even the cap? I thought the cap was a keepsake
wsboeh
59:40
Correct, the cap is a keepsake.
vcarmich
01:00:20
Tams are normally provided with the set and are allowed to be taken home.
Dawnelle Schatte
01:00:23
They can't possibly re-use a cap - that sounds like head lice waiting to happen
Alyssa Shaffner
01:00:37
lololol
Laura Fitzgerald
01:00:58
Can Dr. Levine’s and Dr. Perez’s dogs make a zoom appearance??
