What do you need to know about applying to medical school?

If you are in college, and you have been thinking of a career in medicine, then you are probably best starting your preparation for it now. Even if you are not completely sold on the idea yet, start getting yourself ready. Medical school is crazy competitive, with around 10 applicants for each and every open spot on every course.

You are going to need to start your application process as soon as possible, and this means gaining the relevant experiences in relevant fields in order to start building the strongest application that you can. Failing to start strong can seriously harm your chances later.

What exactly is the point of work experience? After all, you already know what you want to do, you are going to apply to medical school, so why bother with the extra hassle of work experience - isn’t it just a waste of time?

Good questions, but you need to carry out some work experience so that you can find out whether or not medicine really is for you or not and whether it is all you would hope. It is always best to test the water before jumping in, especially before investing an enormous amount of time and money in preparation for it.
