I really thought I had it in me but I just did not see myself doing this for four more years... backstory: I graduated early from undergrad (3 years) with a really high GPA and I got in my first try with average DAT scores. I guess I just wasn't as passionate as I thought I was- or maybe it was wrong timing. Nevertheless, I'm still hopeful for the future. What do you guys think I should do? Dental hygiene and PA school have always been in my radar. I just don't know if I have what it takes now after what happened these 2 weeks. It's as if water was coming at me from a fire hydrant. I was super behind in the didactic portion and I just couldn't keep up with the pace. Then came the hand skills. Of course I could've gotten better with time, but I was also not getting the whole basics such as the dental anatomy - the ridges and all of that. It was just horrid. My wax ups literally looked like if a kinder student made them. There was obviously a lot of other personal factors, but these were the main ones. I just followed what my mind told me and it told me that I would not survive, my essence would be completely gone, and I would be beyond miserable... for what?
