Will’s Answer

Richard is spot on. Time management and discipline are crucial to academic success in medical school. The challenge in preclinical years is the sheer volume of information and the fact that you always feel guilty for not studying when you try to relax. There is no easy way to get through the first two years. Make friends with your classmates; they are great support, and unlike non-medical school friends and family, they understand exactly what you're going through. Try to go to school in a location close to pre-existing friends and family, as they are excellent support as well.

Richard’s Answer

Time management is key. Between lecture, lab and studying, the first 2 years will be grueling. Make sure to leave time for yourself to exercise, eat right and even some socializing.

There will be times during 3rd and 4th year when you will be frustrated by your continued lack of skills and knowledge but just remember that there will be plenty of time to master your specialty during residency.

Time management is everything. Avoiding unnecessary distractions will allow you to focus entirely on your studies.

PAUL’s Answer

Hi I would echo Richard's answer; and emphasize the "non-learning" aspects of your academic journey. Meaning trying to ensure you have balance from a physical point of view (exercise, eating well and sleeping plus blending in some social (friends/family time) ) will help counter the stress and intellectual fatigue you may experience.
Good luck
