    Well... I just got accepted into a school and am already freaking about not doing well in classes. Some of the posts on this board really scared me! I was just wondering... how many hours per week do you guys study in med school (not counting time in class)? Per weekday? Per weekend? Are classes very important? Should I just spend that time reading? I especially want to hear from TUCOM students but if anyone else has any advice, I would be really grateful. Thanks!

    Personally, I skip almost all the lectures and just go to labs. Who has energy to study after 8 hours of classes? Reading the text followed by notes(you can always get them)and a good board review book seem like more than enough to me. Also, if you are productive doing this during the day it leaves you time in the evening to screw around or have time with your significant other(s).

    That's just me though.
