This is a topic that has been discussed generally, but I wonder if any current med students would care to share their "typical" schedule. I'm particularly interested in Chicago area schools and the ones above. I'm planning on starting med school in 2004. I am married with one son who is 1 and another on the way. My wife and I hope to keep our kids out of daycare, so she will probably just be working part-time while I'm in school. I also hope to earn a little money in the summers and as time allows. As you can see, I have good reason to be concerned about the schedule in medical school. I would like to find a "family friendly" school with most of the class work completed by noon. Thanks for the feedback.
