    I don't know what is wrong with me. I took 23 hours (7 classes) last quarter but dropped a class (upper level Molecular Biochemistry: Human Genetics ) due to lack of interest and pulled a 4.0 for the remaining 20 credit hours. So, I had a 3 W's now.

    Should I be worried? I mean I should calm down instead of being crazy about it. I know I couldn't do anything right now. I am such a poor planner and have very low self-esteem and confident.

    What do I do to at least make myself feel better about myself? Do anyone feel like this? Is it because of being a premed? (Don't ask me to get a life, I do have a social life)

    :(

    I thought I was working hard if I had 15 hours of class. But 23, you go girl.

    Hermeone,

    Just relax a bit. I know lots of pre-meds who feel this way. You want to strive to be the best so badly that if one thing goes awry you're very hard on yourself. Remember: 20 yrs from now when you're a sucessful doctor, all of this worrying will seem a bit silly and you'll chuckle over it.

    For now, though, I recommend listening to U2. Great band to get some nervous energy out!

    HUh? What is the problem? You took an above average course load and got a 4.0. How could this be perceived as bad. If it is a self-esteem issue, get counseling NOW, because this could come back to bite you in the ass later in the process when the **** hits the fan for pretty much everyone. It is not always a humbling experience to apply, but it is most of the time, and you should be prepared for it emotionally. See a school counselor perhaps, or a private one, or get hobbies that take you rmind off of school and foster self-confidence. Try to shift the focus from school or else you will find it hard to keep up this pace--all these statements are qualified as generalizations.
