So now the part of getting into dental school is behind some of us, I want to know what are some ways to prepare myself for the dental school and the long hours. I will be taking a long vacation in summer to relax, but in the mean time, I want to get myself ready for my 20+ credit loads. Should I read gross anatomy books and volunteer more? Should I start getting my body read for 12 hour days by only sleeping 6 hours? I know it sounds crazy but I just want to get into the rhythm of things early. What should I do?
