Is becoming a neurosurgeon really as difficult as they say?
I understand that it is a truly competitive field, but it is something that I've been interested in for an extremely long time. I've also recently developed more of a personal attachment to it since I've been suffering from some neurological disorders, and I'd love to help people with situations similar to my own. As long as I score high on the MCATs and get into a reasonable medical school (BU, Tufts, etc.), would it be really unattainable? Would I have to be the top-ranking student in my class to land a residency in neurosurgery? Thanks so much for any advice!80 replies
