Well, its crunch time, tomorrow I send in my application, with either a yes or a no to my med school acceptance at UCD. I have come to the conclusion that UCD is an excellent medical school with a good reputation in the States, hense, nor worry about residency. However, one thing still haunts me. I am a 19 year old, fresh out of high school (finishing first year of my degree) living at home in luxury. The hardest thing I will find is 1) Will I like living away from friends and familiy, 2) will I like Dublin 3) Will living from home, and making that adjustment, affect my marks So You see, theres a lot more to studying medicine from home besides school rep and residency that is an issue here, theres many sociological factors as well. In the end, I probably will accept, because it is an experience and chance of a lifetime.... time will tell. What do you think?
