What should I do to prepare for medical school?

I am a Junior at Sumner Academy of Arts & Science in Kansas City, Kansas and I want to become an anesthesiologist. I'm not worried about getting into a good undergraduate school but medical school on the other hand, I'm stressing about. I know that to get in to medical school, you need to pass the MCAT and I've heard that it is a very difficult exam. I just want to know is there anything I can do to prepare myself for the fast-pace, rigorous course work, in medical school? college doctor medicine graduate

Do your best, GPA wise, on your science/pre-med type courses. Many med schools will separate the GPA of science classes vs overall GPA. Also, take a course/research how to do well on the MCAT, as it will help you get into med school. Once you are in med school, it is more about working as a team and helping each other learn (from what I saw w/ my sister and brother in law - who are MDs - I am not). Go to specific websites of medical schools you are considering - they list what is important to them for future students/applicants and that will help you know what to do so you can meet their expectations. Good luck!

Hi,
I am not a Dr and do not know a lot about becoming one but wanted to give you some sort of answer to your question, hopefully a nice Dr or Med Student will also give you some answers.
I found this link on the AMA website that also has another link to an MCAT website:

Best of luck!
