Hi. I just have a few questions and things to put my might (slightly) at ease. I am sure they have been asked and answered numerous times, but I have seached through pages and pages of questions and figured it might just be easier to start over. Okay. I am brand new to Pre-Med (waaaay farther behind that most people on this forum, from what I have read) and also a History major. This year I have planned out to take Fall: Chemistry 221/227 Biology 251/251L Winter: Chemistry 222/228 Biology 252/242L Spring: Chemistry 223/229 Biology 252/252L Each of those, the lecture and the lab combined are 5 credits. Should I continue along these lines? Is this a good place to start? Should I begin to do Doctor shadowing and interning at hospitals? How do I even find out about those opportunities? I feel like I am starting all over again, seeings how I just decided that I am going to stop telling myself I am too stupid to be a Doctor and go for it. Another question: You take the MCATs a year before you plan on applying for medical school, correct? Ugh, I feel like a baby, but any help would be so appreciated.
