Yasemin’s Answer

Hi Vanisha! I think the biggest doubt for me was the academics; I struggled a lot with math and science so when I first considered medicine I was a subpar student. However once I began to pursue this dream I devoted a lot of time and effort and realized that I could achieve the things I feared at first. That being said I ended up being a tutor for chemistry and biology along with Psychological Statistics; therefore I think that everyone will have some doubts, and they can be in different areas, like time, academics, devotion, etc. In the end it matters if you truly love the field and can stay dedicated! It really is hard work and believing in yourself!

Best of luck!

Steve’s Answer

The only doubt may be the time and effort that it takes to get through med school, the rotations, the Step 1 and Step 2 tests and then another Step test after that, and then there's applying for Residency (and trying to find the match). It's a big deal and you will give most of your life to this effort for 8 years after pre-med. Then the job of being a Doctor can begin if you make it through and you are successful.


This is not for everyone so talk to others and think this through carefully.
