    most med schools don't require calculus so i wouldnt recommend taking it and possibly dropping your gpa. as long as you have 2 college level math courses you should be alright. take inorganic and physics w/o calc 1 next semester then take the second part to each class over the summer (one each month), that way you only have organic chem to take next fall and you can start taking an mcat review course (i strongly recommend kaplan). you can then take your mcat while you are taking your 2nd semester of organic chem and you can be on the application trail as early as 2013!! if you have any other questions or don't understand this feel free to pm me.

    Hi,
    I am brand new on here and I can't figure out how to post or anything. However, I was wondering if you could help. I saw that you got into Medical School. I have my BSN and I was wondering what route you took to complete your personal statement. Do you have any tips/tricks that you could lend? Any help would be much appreciated. Also, I apologize to the owner of the original post, I don't mean to steal or take over your post in any way. I just couldn't figure out how to start a new one. Thank you sincerely.

    I truly don't remember how I did my personal statement but I'm currently writing one to apply for residencies. The advice I was given was to approach it in a chronological way. I would start with an introduction, how you got interested in medicine, an anecdote, a quote. Then do a paragraph on your past experiences, then one on your current experiences, and lastly one on your future plans. if you want more advice, i would suggest checking out Student Doctor Network Forums | An educational community for students and doctors spanning all the health professions. specifically the nontraditional student section. good luck!!

    hey panamishe,

    I'm in nursing school right now and planning on going to medical school. During your interviews for medical school, did any of them ask you about nursing and why you chose medicine instead? Did they like that you took nursing classes pharm/patho etc? And just curious of your grades and mcat score? I also sent you a friend request, hope to hear from you soon!

    Thank You!

    How is medical school? is it as hard as getting your RN. I like to think nothing is as hard as nursing school.

    I've been working as an RN now for a few years and i really would like to attend medical school, but I'm afraid.

    Please let me know how you doing in medical school.

    Good Luck!

    Are you actually serious? Medical school is much harder than nursing school.

    oh my goodness.

    I see people on here discussing how hard nursing school is, and how they have no life and never see their family or friends, and never get any sleep, etc...

    Take that and multiply it by about three and you have medical school. Although I went to a BA/MD program which is quite a bit different than traditional medical school...
