Realizations and the MCAT

We are about halfway through the semester! As each day creeps by, I realize even more how much I completely underestimated the rigor of some of my courses. However, I know I can pull through. It’s just not in me to give up. Something I’ve been learning throughout the year is that there’s a blessing in every lesson, and everything I and other pre-health students are enduring right now is just preparation for future success.

In more school-related news, the MCAT has definitely been a pervasive thought in my head for the past few weeks. I know insecurity is something many people face when prepping to take the test, but I literally take a few minutes every day to just imagine the importance the test has in determining whether I get into medical school or not.

Anyone who knows me knows that for a while when asked what track I am, I generally replied with “pre-medipharmacy” due to my inability to decide whether I wanted to pursue pharmacy or medicine. The fact that I have chosen medicine is fantastic because I KNOW that it’s what I undeniably want to do.

But. MCAT. *sigh*

My resilience will get me through. It has to.

So now that I’m done with my philosophical spiel and medical school related worries, I’d like to ruminate over the fact that in less than three weeks I will not only be turning 21, but I will also be receiving my Aggie Ring! A poignant memento in the life of every Aggie, my ring will definitely be a tangible reminder of the literal sweat and tears I have poured into obtaining my degree. Can’t wait to celebrate with everyone on April 11!
