Today was my first day of medical school. My excitement was jumbled with nerves, but once I stepped into the room with my 121 new classmates, I felt at home. As the dean of admissions was giving his presentation, handing us off to student affairs, my chest swelled with pride and I held a few tears back when he said, “Welcome to your new family.”
I am so excited to be on this journey, and I can’t wait to experience everything medical school has to offer (both the good and the bad). Next on my list: survive orientation week, finish buying my school supplies, cook and prepare my meals for next week, get into a consistent gym schedule, and figure out the bus routes!
