<p>hey everyone,</p>

<p>i actually saw a thread in the pre-med topics that's like this one, but i have a slightly different question.</p>

<p>i want to become a doctor, but i tend to romanticize the profession. </p>

<p>so i was wondering what becoming a doctor means. what do you have to do in order to become one? there's going to be the MCAT and med school application, residencies, so on and so forth, i know that. but, emotionally, how does going through college, taking the required pre-medical courses, feel?</p>

<p>How does this fit into High school life?</p>

<p>Ask the pre-med forums?</p>
