I have wanted to be a doctor since I was young. I like biology and am okay with chemistry. Even though I get straight A's, I find that I am best at abstract subjects like literature. I really want to be clinically responsible for people, and I feel like the doctoring field is my calling, however I just wanted to know firsthand; do I have what it takes?
Have an Answer?
You can definitely succeed at becoming a doctor even if the sciences are not your best subjects. As long as you are able to maintain mostly A's and some B's in your core science classes in addition to performing well in your other classes, you should be fine (I got Bs in most of my chem classes and got in to a great medical school). Many of my classmates majored in subjects outside of the sciences and they are managing just fine in medical school.
I should also note that you will have to perform well on the MCAT in addition to getting good grades. However, I'm not sure what year you are in school, so I don't want to scare you with any of that yet if it's not relevant, haha. Just keep up the good work and I'm sure you will be great!
Best of luck!
Oh yes you do. The journey to become a physician can be long and challenging. Knowing that your calling is to become a doctor is huge because most people in the field or pursuing it are not sure. Also focus on why you want to become a doctor. Remember this, Patience persistence and take care of yourself. It about knowledge but very importantly self discipline. I hope this helps.
