I'm curious how likely it is for a below average student (in 1st and 2nd year) to "shine" during rotations? Maybe not such a good test taker, but knows the material and is great in social situations? I'm asking because I wasn't doing as well as I am now in school, and to make myself feel adequate, I thought to myself, "I'll do much better on rotations since I'm great socially and am very passionate about people." Was this foolish of me to think? I would say I'm about average as a student now and have fixed my test taking skills but I do realize that clinical grades account for more and I want to excel, and not appear as if i'm completely clueless. Any thoughts or personal experiences?
