Many people write beautiful essays to enter med sch. But after med sch, some just want an easy life / go for prestige and money. Nothing wrong with all these, but if these are your only motivations then you will be really disillusioned along the way.
Thank you for your answer.
I asked because 30 hours seem crazy, I can't even stay awake 20 hours. And I am not the smartest out there... no awards, no nothing. How do I know I can survive medicine before entering medicine. If the school selects you, does that mean you are good enough? That you probably can make it?
I wanted to do medicine because i want to work for doctors without borders. But people tell me its too idealistic and that to do medicine it is more than wanting to help people
I should be a therapist or a psychologist instead
