So I am an athlete at a D1 school, as well as a pre-med student. From what I can tell, unless I spend the rest of my summers taking courses, it is going to take me an extra year to graduate. Because athletics takes up so much time, there isn't too much extra time for other extra-curriculars or research. I'm actually not a bad student- I have a 4.0 GPA. I even have a good amount of clinical experience from shaddowing doctors. Still, I cannot help but feel like medical school might not happen. Anyone in a similar situation?
