Struggling freshman in pre med…?
I guess I was just wondering if it gets any easier, I know its only my freshman year and there are so many changes going on, but it’s kind of disheartening. I have wanted to be a doctor for as long as I can remember. Any advice?
B) Large lecture hall classes of any type suck because they are so impersonal.
C) You may want to explore other academic fields. Nothing wrong with that. 3/4 of people who enter as pre-med end up graduating happily in other majors with no desire whatsoever to attend medical school. Once again, there’s nothing wrong with that. You need to look honestly at yourself, not through the judgment of others, to decide what’s in your best interest. Part of this means exploring other options because people in HS tend to have stereotyped ideas about certain career fields (good and bad) so one does not really know much at what is really out there in the world. There’s a lot, and I mean a lot, of occupations that you may find just as fulfilling and frankly, more within your realm of talent and level of excitement.
I wanted to be a doctor also, but I’m terrible at math and science. So there went that!
You need to evaluate what you excel at (writing papers, math, or something else?) Take this information and use it to find a major that you really like. If you don’t like the work you’re doing in your major, I guarantee you will not make it through college.
Also, you’ll be surprised to find that many kids who have always been successful in school will do a face-plant in college. It is a whole different format. I say it’s more like a game than anything. Learn to play it, and you’ll succeed, don’t learn it and you won’t. But rest assured, it won’t be anything like high school.
And yes, it does get easier…. 🙂
The race is against yourself now, not your classmates. Welcome to college. You will do fine.
Good luck ChickA! ^-^
For you it sounds too early to decide right now. If you’re still struggling this badly by the time you matriculate (or by Junior year, whatever), you should take a hard, honest look at your potential in this field.
Hey, you asked.
Ask yourself why you want to be a doctor and if it is worth the costs/effort. If the answers are still good, hang in there.
