Going to medical school was in the back of my mind during college, but I didn't think I was motivated or smart enough to go through the additional schooling. I got a job after graduation and discovered that real people go to medical school and become doctors. I discovered I still wanted to be a doctor, probably more than when I was 22.
I thought the transition from work to medical school would be difficult, and I was right. My memories of undergrad were tainted by nostalgia, and I forgot how tiring classes and studying could be. It did take me a couple of weeks to hit a groove and to also accept that I wouldn't do as well in these classes as my pre-requisite classes.
