AMSA and national partner Kaplan have teamed up for a blog series featuring AMSA leadership from across the country. We are calling this series The Premed Experience, and each week AMSA's On Call and Kaplan's Med School Pulse will post new articles from AMSA leaders on their premedical experience and journey to medical school.

When I heard about the opportunity to write a blog post for AMSA, I was excited for this wonderful opportunity. After the initial excitement wore off a bit, I was left thinking to myself, “What am I going to even write about?” As premedical students, it’s as though we are constantly being told what we should be doing, what we shouldn’t be doing, and it seems as though we are never doing enough. So instead of becoming just another one of those to-do lists, I wanted to make this more personal, a post with which maybe somebody else out there can relate.
It’s a scary world out there, especially as a premedical student. Sometimes I get caught up second-guessing myself and pondering all the what-ifs. I become my own worst enemy.
