What aspect of the Medical School surprised you the most?
I think the biggest “surprise” about medical school was adjusting to the sheer volume of information you get in the first two years. The material itself isn’t that difficult, but there is so much of it, that most of the study habits you used in college simply won’t work. For example, I used to re-write my notes to study in college, but in medical school there just wasn’t enough time! That’s not to say you can’t do it – you just need a little time to adjust!
