The Nebraska football season starts Sept. 1 vs. Southern Mississippi, and linebacker Sean Fisher anxiously awaits it because it easily could be his last as a Husker.
Fisher also is getting a little fidgety thinking about something else.
The Millard North graduate took the MCAT on July 27 and is about halfway through his wait to learn the results. So as taxing as the grind of two-a-days and rigors of preseason practice might be, they’ve actually provided some refuge from the agony.
“I try not to think about it because it’s too stressful not being able to know it for a month,” Fisher said Wednesday. “That’s one good thing about camp, that it’s kept my mind off of it and I focus on football.”
Fisher, a second-team Academic All-American last season, said he started last winter with his heaviest studies for the MCAT. He has still been able to maintain his perfect 4.0 grade average as a business administration major heading into the fall semester.
As hard as he worked and prepared, Fisher said he really doesn’t have a good read on what kind of MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) score to expect. He said he came out of several practice tests with some of the same uncertainty.
“Every time I’d get done and not be real sure if I should feel good about it or bad about it, until you see the score,” he said.
Pending the results, he previously said he would start applying to med schools in late fall.
