I'm sort of in a dilemma right now. I'm a junior preparing to start the application process for med school. I have gotten really good support from profs, but I know what my science GPA's on the low side ~3.2 and average GPA's average ~3.5(but, I'm at a top tech university). Don't know about MCAT though (april test...might be something like 11/10/9) My boyfriend's now in graduate school, and we are hoping to get married and start a family after I graduate, but I definitely can't get into the med school where he's at for PhD. I would think that I can get in a med school close to home in TX instead (and pay the low in-state tuition). I'm having doubts whether I'm ready to attend med school because I love my bf and am realizing how our Long-Distance relationship has been so hard on me in doing well in my academics this term, and my attending med school elsewhere may mean that my relationship'll not workout (from this term's stressing out/depression issues, I can see that being true). But, I'm afraid that dropping the ball now when I have supportive profs. means I may never get around to med school later. My bf's supportive in whatever I choose though. Help? - so, should I apply now for med school now and be long distance (98% chance) or start a family first and then do that later? if I don't get in, then the question becomes much easier, and I find myself even hoping that my application doesn't workout ...a bad call and I know it. feeling pulled in opposite directions..ahh.
