Hey folks. SO, I have this dilemma (albeit a good one.) I have been accepted to medical school, but I am feeling really burned out on school right now. I don't think I've learned much this whole year, and I can't bring myself to do much of anything school-related. For example, I've had 3 days to study for finals, and I've done about 30 minutes of review! Pathetic! Anyway, the school I am probably going to accept tells me that I can defer without any extreme excuses i.e. I can tell them I just want to relax for a year and play video games or whatever. I am sooo tempted to do this! I am graduating with a degree in biology and think I could just get a lab job for a year, save some money, do some traveling, learn to play the guitar, date more (hopefully etc.. I haven't done much of these things over my undergrad career and would like to have some time to "stop and smell the roses." However, I'm not sure. Everyone I talk to and ask opinions of seems to share similar feelings: nobody is sure. There are pros and cons to either decision. Any ideas? I wish I could wait the whole summer to see if I am recharged enough to just begin school in the fall, but the school wants to know in about a month or so. THANKS and good luck to you guys in your endeavors!
