This post is for anyone out there who is in the process of or considering applying to medical school. Some of you are already well into the process of secondary applications and interviews, and others are just now realizing how imminent the application process is for you.
For me that moment was May of my junior year of college. In the middle of finals week I realized that, although I had been studying for the MCAT, I hadn’t even thought to sign up for it. I wanted to take the exam in May to give myself time to retake it. By the time I realized that I hadn’t signed up, it was too late to find a May (or even June) test date.
Then, the fear of applying to medical school hit me. I felt very lost. Although there are many resources available to guide you, it can still be a daunting process.
Here are a few things that I learned on my way.
I’m originally from Knoxville, TN, and found my way to South Carolina four years ago to pursue my undergraduate education at Clemson University. I graduated in May 2012 with a degree in Bioengineering, and I’m thrilled to be spending four more years in this area. I am passionate about USC School of Medicine Greenville’s commitment to community wellness and developing well-rounded doctors. I am excited to share this journey of our charter class with you.
