Hi everyone, I'm currently a rising sophomore at a 4-year university in the U.S.
I was originally planning to major in communications & theatre because I've always had a passion for theatric arts, but I realized it just wasn't for me by the time I finished freshman year.
So I took some summer classes (doesn't give credit) for two and a half months in a variety of subjects to explore my options (biology, anatomy, astronomy, studio art, etc.) + did an internship at a private medical clinic. I fell in love with my science courses along with the activities I witnessed while working at the clinic. I'm one week away to finishing my summer school and internship, and I just really realize how much I am passionate for working in the medical field. I've definitely thought about premed back in high school since I enjoyed science classes back then as well. But I didn't realize til now how much this field means to me especially after a lot of family hardships due to illnesses.
I've started researching the pre-med track, but I'm very conflicted at the moment. I didn't take any pre-medical courses in my freshman year except for developmental psychology.
I saw that almost all pre-med students take about 2/5 of their premed prerequisites by freshman year.. I need to take general chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, physics, and calculus but I don't know how I'm going to schedule this all out when I'm a whole year behind. I'm just entirely lost in this process.
What should I do?
