I am not one to give advice. I guess I just prefer to share a story and you take it with a grain of salt? I can tell you what makes applying to medical school easier:
- Work hard from the very start. It does not matter when you decide to pursue medicine. Work towards your goals from the moment you know what it is that you want.
- Dedicate some part of yourself to something special and learn what “selfless work” means.
- Take the time to self-reflect, often. It gives you the chance to figure out the extent of your ambition, challenges, habits, and inspiration.
- Ask for help. If you are ever confused and in need of guidance, look to those who are knowledgeable and can help you help yourself.
Aside from that, the speciality I am interested in is orthopaedic surgery.
