Hey everyone! Hope all is well. I just wanted to share something that has happened recently... and I'd love some advice My Kaplan teacher, who also happens to go to my school and is a wonderful friend of mine, is extremely brilliant (as I'm sure most of you are.) He got above a 36 on his MCATs, applied on time this past cycle, and did amazing on all of his interviews. He got accepted into all Texas schools except for San Antonio (because of the lack of biochemistry). So basically, he can go anywhere he wants- including UT Southwestern. We've all been asking him for the past few weeks where he has decided he wants to go and he says he's not sure... but probably not Southwestern. Anyway, that's irrelevant. The point is, Monday was our last Kaplan class before the January MCAT, and he was still indecisive. Today I saw him in the library and we chatted for a little bit. Then I noticed he was on the PCAT website. I asked him why? He said he was going to register for it & that he didn't want to go to medical school anymore because he doesn't have the motivation to get through it and is not willing to put up with the life style. Honestly I flipped **** (sorry I'm 19, we talk like that.) He's been accepted into medical school and he has decided he doesn't want to do it. I'd understand if he has a SOLID reason, but I know he's just terrified right now. He can pick specialties that don't necessarily have too much of a rigorous life style. And I KNOW he is smart enough to get through medical school. I really would love to give him advice so that he doesn't make a huge mistake. Like I said, if he had a good reason I would let it go... but he doesn't. I don't know. And what's funny is he was saying he doesn't want to leave his family (who he is with right now.) But he doesn't have to? He's accepted at SOUTHWESTERN which is in our backyard. And anyway, if he applied to pharmacy school and gets in... he'll have to go down to Austin or something? It just doesn't make sense and it's really upsetting me. He's my Kaplan teacher! I want to know why he suddenly had this change of heart! After keeping a 4.0 GPA, rocking his MCATs, and going through the crazy application and interview process!
