Estelle’s Answer

After high school, you go to college for about 4 years to get a degree.
Your major is not as important as your undergraduate grades, your MCAT score, your letters of reference, and your personal statements on your medical school application. Focus on finding a college that fits you and your budget and a major that really interests you in college so that you will make great grades and get strong letters of recommendation from professors that recognize your potential. Volunteer at your local hospital or low-income clinic. Ask physicians, PAs or other clinical providers if you can shadow them.
During college study for and complete the MCAT. Devote an entire summer to studying for the MCAT and consider paying for a prep course if you can afford it.

Medical school is another 4 years followed by a 3 year residency. You will receive a salary as a resident.
