Hello, I have been lurking around these parts for awhile, and have seen the plethora of similiar threads posted. Ive found out lots of interesting information, but I would still like some advice, before I begin making life-changing decisions. I am currently at the end of my Junior year of nursing school at one of the top nursing schools in the country (fwiw). Unfortunately, due to a combination of apathy, laziness, hangovers, ect I will manage to graduate with just around a 3.0....Ive had a good time here! I had a 3.7 in high school, 1300 SAT, and Ive never taken calculus Through my clinical experiences, and some soul searching, Ive decided that I truly do want to be a doctor. I used to think the journey it required was not worth it, and working as little as possible was exactly the lifestyle I desired.....my grades are reflective of that 'tude. I now KNOW that I Want to do this, whatever the heartache, studyache, sleep deprivation. So as I read these forums, and chew my fingernails, and agonize about the proper course toward reaching my goal, I figured I would ask for a bit of advice. I would love to do a formal 1 year post bacc, but it seems like competition for these things is fierce! I probably would've been better off majoring in classical literature like my little heart desired. I'd really like to get on the right track as quickly as possible, and not delay any longer. So anyway, what is a newly reformed almost BSN student to do? I know I am capable of mastering the material, I got a 5 on AP Bio no problem (which is meaningless Im sure, but I don't have socks for brains either). Suggest plans of action? PostBaccs that are a bit less lofty? Personal anecdotes? Any help would be most appreciated, and again I apologize for inundating the board with another one of these threads-Thanks!
