med school seems like a journey away, but still it seeems so near. There's so much pressure on pre-meds, and I know I'm not the only one who feels it. I completed my first year of undergrad, but what do I do next? This summer I will be volunteering in a nearby hospital, and hopefully getting a part time job. My first year ended in a 3.68 gpa, not what I expected to get,beause I know I could have done much better. What type of first year does med schools expect you to have? I know that some have done worst and still have gotten into med school. Plus I realize that it's only my first year. Maybe I just need to lighten up, move on and do better next semester. I don't know, maybe I'm just a worry wart who needs some reassurance. Anyway, this post has no real substance,but I am interested in hearing about others first year college exoeriences. Thanks for any replies!
