My 1st Day Of Med School Is Almost Here! (Did I Make A Mistake?)
June 21, 2013
Given that I have known that I wanted to be a doctor since I was five years old -back-up plan was to be a waitress or ballerina- in theory, I should be 100% prepared to actually begin medical school. However, I find myself worrying about the future. What if they let me into medical school on accident? I spent 6+ years (three admissions cycles) applying to medical schools and telling AMCAS and admissions committees that I’m smart enough and capable enough to become a doctor. Now, I find that I wonder if I just finally fooled medical schools into believing me.
Now, you may wonder why I am blogging about this today. I wanted to share my doubts and uncertainties with you all because I know that they are doubts and uncertainties that you may face some day. As pre-med students, you focus on the goal of getting into medical school. You tell everyone that you’re going to medical school and you’re going to become a doctor. No one ever tells you what you should do once you get in or how you should approach actually going to school.
