I'm about to be a junior in college, so I figure it's time to start thinking seriously about medical school if I'm going to go. I took General Biology freshman year and General Chem this past year. I got a B+ in bio and a B in chem. I worked in hospitals during the past two summers and also shadowed doctors. I'm interested in medicine because I really like seeing the patients. I like that somebody comes in and something is wrong with them and you get to figure out what it is. And I like that you can make them feel so much better. Making somebody feel better makes me feel really good. I had a kidney stone a few years ago and I was in so much pain and didn't know what was wrong with me and when I got to the ER, they took a CT scan and I thought it was pretty cool that they could figure out what was wrong with me. The reason I hesitate about studying for the MCAT and everything is because medical school honestly seems like hell on earth. It seems to me like medical school students have no lives. And residency seems impossible. When I think about having to do residency, it just doesn't seem possible to me, especially because I get headaches when I'm fatigued. My mom is a doctor and she tells me she would be tired very often, but it was not that bad, but I don't believe her. How do I decide if I'll be able to do this?
