I'm interested in seeing how this goes. Haven't gone to college as I've done trade school for electricians for 2 years.

A lot of hospitals have certain programs specifically tailored for whatever your situation is. While you're still in uni, ask some people in a hospital near you and tell them what your situation is and see if they have a program for someone like you. It's what one of my cousins have done and it really helped them through medical school.

If you haven't shadowed already, do it. You learn a lot more in the thick of it.
I currently volunteer at the hospital, I plan on doing shadowing later on as it isn’t as hard to get a position.

Also I fucked up again :> I swear I get an A- in all my important classes.

Physics lab: B
Physics 1 lecture: A-

what branch of medicine are you aiming for? pharmacology and neuroscience are interesting and useful, so is chem and organic chem, but those are less useful for practicing medicine.
personally the only interesting thing in medicine is anesthesiology, it can be quite lucrative as well, I have family that specialized in working with pregnant women (mo' risk mo' money) and by age 40 they dont really have to do jack shit anymore and just make dat money move
-----
i mean, dont you have to study bio and biochem do be a decent doc anyway? that shit is just essential
-----
I dont know shit about uni because im a degenerate but if you study computer science along with any other feild it opens up a huge amount of extremely lucrative opportunities for you, id recommend atleast taking an intro to programming class to see if you have the head for talking to computrs (most people dont) but if you do it is easy and fun and will lead to good things even if med school falls through

Anesthesiology is boring, I don't want to do that. Bio and Biochem is necessary for the pre-requisites for medical school here in the U.S. I don't want to do computer science I dislike it, though it is true it is a growing profession with lots of opportunities.

That’s impressive. Have any current medical experience? Your GPA is for sure enough to make it into a school.

I would recommend finding a premed adviser at your uni if you haven’t already, but other than that, study hard in P&A :S.

Also, I love watching Dr. Mike on yt. Kind of a neat inspiration for med students and doctors.



Just went up and read your newer posts lol. Are you interested in a DO or an MD? And awesome work man!

What do you volunteer at? I volunteered in the er, did some infection control and reception work too.
