How essential do you guys think a premedical advisor is? I havn't seen mine since last year, and I'm half-way embarassed to see her again. I suppose its because of my lackluster freshman year. I'm sure she'll bust out with "you'll never make it into medical school with a freshman year that bad". Honestly I think I know enough and have enough resources to do this on my own. I have the internet, books, and a valuable source of information here! Honestly, these forums are very informative. You can gain alot just from reading posts of those gone before us. I know what I should be taking for my degree, and I know what medical school takes. Am I making a big mistake not seeing my advisor once again this semester?
