If you have your anxiety under control, there is a chance if you do well. The problem is that unless you live in a huge city, medical schools are not always convenient to home. How do we know you won't have issues in medical school?Hi
So long story short I started my undergrad career at a small private university and was doing pretty well making As and Bs and I think one C on my first semester of Gen Chem but made a B- the following semester. ( I hate chemistry). I transferred to a university a little close to home but still states away because I was homesick. After transferring to a State university everything went downhill. Between my own anxiety, massive campus and culture shock and worrying about things going on back home out of my control I flunked several classes. 5 to be exact. All of them were pre med pre requisites. I graduated thankfully but I’m still deficient in these classes I plan on taking them at a local university close to home I’m also working to support my family and I have many hours of shadowing. I guess what I’m asking is, is there hope for me. Medicine is all I want to do and I would hate for everything I worked for in the beginning to be brushed aside because of these last semesters.
thanks in advance!

I actually live in a big city but I left for college. Moving back my local university also has a medical school that I’m aiming for. I think transferring from a really small university to a massive university was just a little too stressful. I know it sounds a little ridiculous but I had never ridden a bus before until I went to the state university. I was late to class so many times or just didn’t make it because I kept missing the bus. Either way I did learn how to orient and schedule things accordingly so I could make the bus in time but it was too late.
