Scheduling is THE most important thing I do to make my lifestyle work. Not only do I plan every day by the hour (sometimes half hour) but I also plan my weeks, months and years far in advance because I have to make sure my competitions and rotations/research deadlines don’t overlap (to the best of my ability).
I finally understood why every level of school had been asking for research. They wanted you to be invested in something medically related. They wanted you to commit time to making a difference in the medical field.
With the holidays coming up, family functions are inevitable and who doesn’t love family gatherings?! However, if you’re in medical school these are the questions you can expect your family to ask as soon as you sit down at the dinner table. Be prepared.
During first and second year of medical school it was obvious why I was afraid to speak up. We had tons of information drilled into our head every second of the day. “Oh yea I remember reading that but what was that exact pathway?” The few moments I was comfortable with the information I didn’t feel the need to be a gunner and shoot my hand to the sky before the lecturer finished asking the question.
Throughout high school, I was an average student. I got mostly B’s to be honest. I never really tried to aim for higher grades like others did because I think I lacked determination. However, I always knew I wanted to go into the medical field. I just finished my first year of college and this year has made me think about aiming higher than a nurse. I am a smart person when I apply myself and I know I could make it if I try hard enough. Do you think I still have a chance getting into a med school?
