Sushma’s Answer

I would agree with agree with Pari! Its about having a study life balance. It’s a beautiful journey but it’s very very hard. We are fresh out of college, the curriculum is extensive, need to memorize a lot of things, so we need to put in a lot of hard work from the beginning, develop resilience and endure through the journey. It’s important to make time for a hobby, exercise or meditate to destress. If you push through the first few years, you’re going to enjoy the fruit of your efforts later.

Pari’s Answer

Hmmmm the hardest thing about medical school......

I guess the study life balance. You might not get to visit or attend every event that you want to. It sometimes can get isolating. For example, I have family in another country. My only close relative, who I consider a brother, was getting married. I asked my school in advance (at the beginning of the academic year~ 6/7 months in advance) if I could take off for one week and they made it seem like it was not possible. Looking back, I wish I fought for it more because it could've been possible if my professors were a little lenient. But even to this day, it's one of the things I regret the most. If it's important to you, fight for it. But, yes, sadly, there will be things that you have to miss: birthdays, holidays, etc.

Also, medical school is a completely different ball game. It's different from college; you can't cram the night before and think you will pass. You have to have the endurance and patience to study every single day. It's good to make a good group of friends so that you can support each other throughout.
