    Your opinion is meaningless. Do everyone a favour and stop speculating. You're causing people to get anxious over information which may or may not be accurate. Last year I was rejected with a TFR score that just made the cut-off. This year I was accepted and didn't add much to my application. I also have a 29 MCAT with a 7 in verbal. A very close friend of mine was also accepted with a 25 MCAT this cycle.

    My God it's been a long time since I've seen you post around here. I remember when you first posted you got into UBC med and now you're a resident (I was in my first year undergrad). Good for you, brother. I'm still trying to get in.

    Phosphorus got a reaction from dr-m-s in Med Students, Looking Back To Undergrad   
    I'm not a medical student, so take my comment for what it's worth (probably not a lot).
     
    I find it hard to believe that anyone who isn't a senior medical student, resident, or physician can accurately answer that question. Who knows what it will be like 10 or so years down the road. If you asked me 10 years ago what my life would be like today or who I would be as a person today, my answer would be dead wrong. I, like you, am concerned about where all of this will end. If I will be happy. If the stress will get to me. If I will regret my decision. I understand that there will be days where I will regret my decision. I also understand that there will be days where I will tell myself that I made the right decision. I have come to the conclusion that a lot of my fears stem from the process rather than the profession itself. You put in a lot of work without much of a guarantee of a reward. It's risky, but I suppose that's life. We, at one point or another, have to pull the trigger and do what we feel is right or what we think will make us happy. For every person that provides a convincing argument for why medicine sucks, another person will have an equally convincing argument for why its one of the greatest professions.
     
    I think where you, myself, and many others fall short is that we have no real world work experience. There are other careers that I would consider doing if not medicine (e.g., teaching). Like my current knowledge of medicine, however, my knowledge of the teaching profession is only superficial. My goal is to gain as much experience as possible (however limited it may be) and to trust my instinct. I am currently going through the application process now with the expectation that this is the field for me. However, that's not to say that I am not pragmatic about the situation.
