The Premed

You're premed. You have doubts about if medicine is right for you.

You are STRESSED OUT about the MCAT.

You have no idea where to start.

You're worried about your grades, whether they are good enough.

You don't know how to get shadowing experience.

You are tired of visiting that other site that has millions of forum posts, most of which are anonymous users “yelling” at other posters for “dumb” questions.
