Being accepted into medical school is a great accomplishment, and you’ll be happy to start on your path toward your dream. However, medical school is different than your undergraduate years in many ways. What do you need to survive and thrive during that first year of medical school?
Limit Other Obligations
Having an array of jobs, activities and other obligations might have worked when you were still a senior in college. However, you need to cut back on as many of these other obligations as possible. Medical school is going to take up a lot of your time, and you are going to need to maintain high grades. Having other distractions really threatens your chances of being successful. If you must have a job, try to find a school sponsored one related to your field of study.
