I'm 22. I'm enrolled at a community college, and as far as I know, do not have any credits. I took some classes last fall, but did not complete them due to a family emergency, so I'm going to take them again. If they are on my transcript as failing, will this count against me when I eventually apply to med school, despite taking them again? Basically I'm on this site looking for the best advice I can get from the folks who are already in the trenches. I don't have a clue what I'm doing. My original plan was to get my associates degree in nursing, get work, then work on my bachelors degree and see what I wanted to do after that. But pretty recently I've had experiences that have made me desire to become a physician, so I'm wondering if I have a shot at it. Basically I'm starting at zilch. I know nothing about the world of medical school, none of the acronyms or admissions procedures or what schools are out there, or anything. Depending on how I do at CC, I want to go to the University of Texas to complete my bachelors. Not certain what I want to major in, exactly, but biology is sounding pretty good. I guess I'll get to the point: what is the best resource for someone who is completely clueless? I'm talking Med School for Dummies, or Complete Idiots Guide to Med School kinda resources. I'm a fairly intelligent chick, and I think if I work my tail off for the next 4 or 5 years, I stand a good chance at doing this. How do you begin?
