Tips for Surviving Medical School
Remember when you were a premedical student in college? It seems like a century ago for many of us who have just completed the first year of medical school. It feels that way because our lives have changed dramatically. Normal life seems to have vanished, and suddenly, 24 hours in a day are not enough to get through the enormous volumes of information that we are expected to learn for every exam. It seems virtually impossible. We barely have time to eat or sleep.
Medical school is not the end of the world. Take it from us, students who have been there, when we say that medical school is what you make of it. Do not let medicine define you; instead, you should tailor medicine to your lifestyle. Otherwise, you might become overwhelmed by the demands of your new life and lose the sense of why you chose medicine in the first place.
How do you survive medical school?
Help! It's the dreaded MCAT
HELP! Okay so I’m a sophomore- Junior to be doing pre-med and am wondering when to plan out my MCAT studying and so on. 1. Do you think kaplan courses really do help? are they worth the $$. 2. How do you suggest studying for MCATS? Thanks!
Here are two posts that might help. The first is a Pre-Med Timeline. Most people take the MCAT at the end of their Junior year.
As far as preparation check out this post on my MCAT advice.
Hope that helps. The MCAT is a tough road, but remember:
Best of luck,
