Dumi’s Answer

It is really challenging. The amount of hours of study required to get in to medical school is about 25% of whats required to be successful in Medical School. The volume of information and the level of responsibility is intense. This is an environment that is preparing you for residency. Residency is another difficult task. Expect to be challenged no matter how smart you are. When referring to the information your required to study and the amount of time you have to study it, it is compared to drinking water from a water hose that is set on its maximum output. If you study smart and work hard you will be successful.

Yes, unless you have perfect recall, medical school is quite difficult. The amount of information that must be memorized is overwhelming.

Plan on putting everything else in life on the back-burner. You will be studying or in class 70 hours per week for the first 2 years.

Estelle’s Answer

Medical school is extremely challenging. It requires dedication, commitment, and focus. By the time you get there, however, you will be prepared because you will have done very well in undergraduate studies and already taken some very difficult classes like organic chemistry. The road to becoming a physician is long and really requires so much work but is worth it.
Good luck!
