At this particular instant, I realize that there's exactly 10 days left before school starts for me. One part of me is quite excited as this will be my last year of university but at the same time, I'm nervous because with graduation in the distant future comes the thought of having to actually plan for my future and what I'm going to be doing. Obviously, I hope to be successful in my medical school applications such that by this time next year, I would be mingling with all the awesome medical students of my graduating class =D (what's the term for first year med students attending orientation as opposed to first year undergrad "froshies"?) I've started several applications and I've realized (in my opinion at least) that there are 3 reactions when it comes down to filling out the "autobiographical sketch" on these applications:
- The "Man, I didn't do as much as I'd thought in the past [insert however many years] of my life" reaction
- The "I think my activities are well rounded. I should have a good shot" reaction
- The "Wow! I can't believe I did all of these things in the past [insert however many years]. *Gives self a big pat on the back"
Wishing all premeds who are applying this cycle the best of luck!
