I am extremely stressed out! Can anyone out there relate? I am a non-trad (31) who is currently taking science classes I didn't take when I was in college previously. I will be applying to med schools in June and taking the April MCAT. Currently, I am taking Calc, organic, and physics and it really sucks! I feel like there is not even close to enough time during the day to do all that I need to do. I don't have a "real" job, but I do tutor, and let me tell you, whenever I see that someone has signed up for me, I just scream inside because that's just one more hour taken away from my day! Under normal circumstances I probably would not be so stressed, but its the fact that this is my last year of classes before applying so I want to have excellent grades. Plus, when am I going to study for the MCAT? I've looked at study books and all that info that I'm sure I learned at one point has completely left my brain! I feel like there is so much pressure on me (admittedly that I place on myself) that I just might spontaneously combust! Unlike most people who post on here, I don't care where I get in, I just pray to God that I get in somewhere! It took me a long time to realize this is what I wanted to do and I honestly can not think of anything else I want to do with my life. What am I going to do if I don't get in? I am taking my classes at a community college and we don't have a premed advisor or any kind of premed group so I really don't have anyone to talk to about these things. My friends and family don't understand it...they say "don't worry, you'll get in". Well, what do they know? They don't know how competitive it all is and how much pressure there is to do it all so your application is perfect. I guess I am just looking to hear from those of you who understand the pressure since I don't really have anyone else to talk to about it. It is really hard for me to read all these posts from those of you who have already applied and are getting interviews from top schools. I can't relate to that...I'd be perfectly happy at our state school! Sorry this is so long, but I needed to get it out!
