4. Your plan or your path to success.
Never really had a chance to focus only on school. Always had to work, take care of others or choose lab time over study time. It will be nice to just concentrate on my classes and trying to become the best doctor I can be. It also helps that I have full support of my family.
What I did right
Not to sound arrogant... but the first thing I did right was grow up. I would have never been emotionally or mentally mature enough to take on this task right out of college. I personally think the best thing I have going for me is experience and maturity. I know what I want and exactly how to get there.
What I did wrong
I didn't take college seriously until I was in my 2nd year. I wasn't concerned with doing my best, I was just trying to get by and have fun. Who knew that C in organic would haunt me for ever.
