What did you think about the transition from undergrad to medical school? Any tips for prospective students?

I took two and a half years off in between undergrad and medical school to serve on disasters with AmeriCorps NCCC - FEMA Corps, complete field research in Colorado, and become a Wilderness EMT. I gained new perspectives and hands on skills. Don't hesitate to take time off! You will add diversity to your class through your unique experiences.
