I'd like to ask all the med students and/or residents out there a question about their expectations of med school and what actually came to be. 1) Did you expect you would have an active social life while in med school? if you did, what actually was the case? 2) Did you expect med school to be difficult? If not, what actually was the case? if you did, was it as difficult as you had thought? 3) did you or do you ever feel med school is/was too stressful? and did you ever think about quitting it? if so, what made you stay? 4) are you glad you picked medicine? if not, what has made you stay? If any of you can answer any of these questions or all of them I'd love to hear it. I'm asking because I am doubting at this point in time whether I should go to med school. I have a really great job right now that I like, however I have an opportunity to go to a great med school sitting right in front of me. the problem is that I feel like I am not ready to go into medicine, but at the same time I love the concept of helping people. thanks for any input.
