So I have a few acceptances that are mainly from out of state schools. I lived at home with my family throughout undergrad to save money and am really really close with my parents (and my dog). Even if I go to school in my own state, I'll be moving out. I've lived away from home before for about a year, but it was only 2.5 hours away. I'm just wondering what people think about the transition to living in another state during medical school. Does this make med school harder than it needs to be? Is it difficult to make friends, a support system, etc? How do you cope with loneliness and homesickness? Any advice or insight would be much appreciated!
