I have heard horror stories about the workload at the med school. Now that I'm an M1 at my top choice med school, I feel like I'm breezing by. One of the reasons is that I am worried about becoming a social outcast since I don't have any friends so I have been saying yes to almost all social calls (except the bar scenes since I don't drink). I go to sleep around 10. I attend classes every day from morning to around 5, which leaves me about an average of 3-4 hours of studying a day, sometimes less. I hear from my classmates that they are overwhelmed with the workload. But I'm studying way less than that of my undergraduate years. I got my first biochem test back and I scored 87 when the class median was 74 and H was 90+. I was very relieved. With the neuroticism of SDN, I feel guilty - there is a lurking feeling that I should be studying more and doing research, or God knows what else, etc. The other issue is complacence. I am worried that I will get into this habit of slacking off and solidifying this routine when the workload gets heavier and tougher. How do you gauge how much studying is enough?
