FInd your Niche in school and try to find a group of friends you can stick with for a long time. It's harder and harder to do so after your first year...

1. Study your butt off but don't be a loser.
2. Help your other pre-meds out; don't think of them as competition.
3. Volunteer/Shadow in a hospital from the beginning.
4. Work in a lab or something over the summer if like research.
5. Learn from people on here about the application process.
6. Get to know your professors -- they write your LORs.
7. Enjoy the process!

I think 250 of your 257 posts have been threads that you started about finding a major! :laugh:

Enjoy yourself, but never lose sight of your goals. That simple piece of advice will help prioritize and make some of the most important decisions of your life.
