My Path from High School to Medical School | High School Transcript Reveal!

Оценок: 6792 | Просмотров: 350004
In this video, I talk about my journey from high school to medical school. I didn't talk too much about extracurricular activities I did or the number of AP classes I took during high school because I honestly don't think it matters all that much for med school. That said, I do think high school is a great time to explore and develop who you are as a person and pursue hobbies and interests that make you UNIQUE. Getting into a "good college" definitely has its merits but it won't necessarily help you get into medical school. From my experience, medical schools look for people who have a variety of interests and hobbies. Doing well in college is obviously very important but as admittance to medical schools becomes more and more competitive, schools are looking beyond the numbers (GPA & MCAT) and starting to assess each applicant as a whole. As you will see, I was not the best student in high school and I wanted to be as transparent about that as I possibly can. I want to encourage everyone to not give up on your dreams even if you're not going to a "good" college or have a certain GPA. I also want to stress the importance of setting specific goals and working towards them. For me, realizing I wanted to go to medical school made such a huge difference in how I performed in school. If you are already a good student in high school and have tons of extracurricular activities, keep up the good work! But don't forget to LIVE your life and find time to do the things you love doing. Find your passion IN and OUTside of school. ________________________________________________________ Check out the rest of the videos that are part of this series: What's in my med school backpack: https://youtu.be/bAh4MxPb0iA FAQ about how to get into medical school: https://youtu.be/2PehxHQLBM4 What's in my white coat: https://youtu.be/KROFnLSDc7Y How a typical medical school schedule looks like: https://youtu.be/da917hZV-wo Useful Apps I use in Medical School: https://youtu.be/S-e3uA-SdG0 Typical Weekly Schedule of a Med School Student: https://youtu.be/da917hZV-wo Study Tips for Medical School and College: https://youtu.be/MUGnNH9AEX0 A Typical Day in Medical School: https://youtu.be/RgftpK99w2I How to Prepare and Study for the MCAT: https://youtu.be/iK8FK3o5lA0 Study Schedule of a Medical School Student: https://youtu.be/H9XFLqJ0Xb8 First Year vs Second Year of Medical School: https://youtu.be/T4cT-jZHCzY Med School Essentials Giveaway!: https://youtu.be/Vmt9G5zUDxU Staying Motivated in Medical School: https://youtu.be/RL2UtHdNkSQ A Typical Weekend in Medical School: https://youtu.be/ad-3Jf40i-Y Favorite Note Taking Tools and Stationery: https://youtu.be/QkfRgPD6QBQ My Path from High School to Med School: https://youtu.be/-3RJs7aSSOQ Typical Day in Medical VLOG: https://youtu.be/pWnktL1LAv8 ----------------------------------------­­---------------------- Also find and follow us on Instagram and Twitter at: https://twitter.com/thestrivetofit https://instagram.com/thestrivetofit Snapchat: TheStriveToFit Check out our entire video catalog: http://goo.gl/BnyBsW Mailing Address: Jamie L.

This may be really lame but greys anatomy inspires me to be a doctor. I know that it’s unrealistic but I have really wanted to be a surgeon now for the past few years but now it’s intensified. I can’t think of anything I would rather want to do than having a career in the medical field.

Help! I am 13 years old and about to go into 8th grade, and I am extremely interested in anatomy, physiology, and biology. What are good "first steps" as an almost to-be high schooler? I really wish to have an early start on things, to familiarize, and I am in desperate loss of what I should do first. Please help! thanks. :)

I’m from the UK and so this GPA system doesn’t really make sense to me, is it the equivalent to an overall raking of A-Levels?
Rina Berman (28 дней назад)
Letter grades are assigned points. For my high school, A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0. A lot of colleges like my alma mater have a +/- system where an A or A+ is a 4.0, A- is a 3.7, B+=3.3, B=3, etc. So you multiply the grade in your class by the amount of credit hours, add those up for each class, and divide by the total credit hours, and that's your GPA.

Paige 1 (4 месяца назад)
You're really inspirational to me. I'm just about to start my first year of college and I already know I wanna go pre-med but I'm scared I'm not gonna make it into med school. Last year (12th grade) I got C's in so many AP classes and I'm not the best student. I'm trying so hard to get better though, especially with managing anxiety and studying more. Seeing your grades like mine, I'm feeling more confident. Any college tips for before med school?
Issaiah Toerell (4 месяца назад)
I love your videos you’re so realistic and straight forward with us about this stuff. So I’m going into 9th grade in September of 2018 and i already know i wanna do something in the medical field, I’m really interested in Peds though. (I’m also in band I play the bass drum in marching and the chimes, xylophone, bells, wind chimes.. in concert band) but do you have to be going to school to become a surgeon to be at the hospital your 3rd year or is it for physicians and surgeons??

I just got accepted to medical school and before my senior year of highschool my gpa was 1.9. I barely graduated with a 2.0. I didn't know I wanted to do medicine until my sophmore year of college but just know highschool doesn't define your success in life.

Faith Lapointe (6 месяцев назад)
I know I'm super late watching this, but thank you! I've always wanted to go to medical school, but I thought since I mostly get B's in high school, it wouldn't be possible. This made me realize I can do it, and not give up <3
Faith Lapointe (6 месяцев назад)
Thank you, you're amazing!
Ryan Hui (6 месяцев назад)
Faith Lapointe i just got accepted to med school and my highschool gpa at the beginning of my senior year of HS was 1.9. Highschool grades definitely do not define success. I also didnt choose medicine until my junior year of college so if youre earlier on and know what you want to do you're ahead of the game. Never give up :)

4.0 GPA is impossible... but 3.9 GPA is....
evelyn r. (8 месяцев назад)
honestly, this is so reassuring. im currently a junior with pretty good, but not PERFECT grades (some b+s in my hardest classes) and not too many great extracurriculars & basically this counselor that i went to said i wouldn't be able to get into college because i didn't have straight a's. thanks for stressing that even if you don't initially go to a prestigious college, things can work out <3
Jess Ranieri (8 месяцев назад)
can i still pass the mcat or gamsat. though i didn't do chemistry or physics in high school? i did up to year 10. can i learn them the year before i sit the tests and still get a passing grade to get into med school?
FuturePediatricSurgeon (8 месяцев назад)
This just proves that college is much more important than that of high school. I hear all the time “y’know, you have to do super well in high school to go to med school.” Which is true in a sense, because you do need to get into college... but it’s not really all that accurate! Overall college GPA, pre-med classes GPA, EC’s, and MCAT score are what actually matter... plus! There’s NO shame in getting help! Almost all colleges have free tutoring services!
Giselle Rodriguez (8 месяцев назад)
I am very grateful for videos such as these. I want to pursue a career in medicine, most likely an obgyn( which I'm leaning more on) or trauma surgeon. And I have been stressing lately since it's my senior year and no one in my family can help me with the path I'm trying to pursue. I'm currently taking ap calculus and the only reason I took it was to have some understanding of what i will face in college, math is not my strongest subject whatsoever. I've been having a great deal of self doubt and tend to lower my own self esteem, but hearing your words of advice has put me at ease. Thank you! Subscribed to your awesome chanel💜💜

I didnt takr chemistry, physics , and additiomal maths ( i only took biology) for my freshman and sophomore year and i am scared to take chem and phys for my junior and senior because i didnt habe the basics yet , but i really wanted to go to medical school and i have heard some said that you need to take all sciemces in order to go to medical school I really need an answer so it would mean anything if someone could answer my question if its possibke to go to medical school without chemistry or physics Thxx fir reading and please reply😉

Kubono Ponpon (10 месяцев назад)
I can relate in some level. Since I moved in America around my first year in high school and it was one of the biggest struggle I’ve ever been. Given that I also moved to japan with no known knowledge about their language and went for a whole year with nothing but just sitting in class and not have to learn a single thing relating to education just focusing on learning their language. Those changes really had a toll on me and my school career as a kid.

Thanks for the video! And here is a question. Is it possible for an international student to get in a med school in America? I'm kind of interested in medical stuffs, and i'm not an American permanent resident. Thanks
PrincessGalactica PrincessGalactica (5 месяцев назад)
angela chu International students can most certainly attend med school in the US. According to data there are 62 med schools in the US that take international applicants. The requirements vary though. You'd have to look on their websites and/or stay in contact with them. Also the United States has an educational partnership with colleges in Canada and the United Kingdom so if you have course work from those countries it might transfer over.

holly dyana (11 месяцев назад)
As an AP & Honors student in a very large and competitive school, I’ve been facing a lot of self doubt lately because I’m not doing as well as I want to be doing. Since I want to pursue medicine, I watch videos on channels similar to yours, and it seems like so many of them are giving pre-med (and high school) students unrealistic expectations for themselves. Thank you so much for doing the opposite and showing that you don’t NEED a perfect GPA to make it in medicine. You’re a true inspiration for me! xoxo <3

did you take organic chem?? if so, did it help you at all in your med school journey? the med school im looking at doesnt need organic chem as a requirement but other schools do need organic chem as a requirement, so do you suggest that i take it?

I’m not good at math or science so I’m so worried I won’t be able to go to medical school to become a future dermatologist. I researched and this is really my dream job, but I feel like I’m not good enough..idk what to do. I have a few months left to decide before I graduate. Any advice?
Diamond Urey (10 месяцев назад)
I have this issue but my dream career is a gynecologist. If your ultimate goal is to be a dermatologist then you'll have to make things work . Why is it that you're not good in math and science? Does it bore you or is it too hard ? Find a way to connect what you're learning to every day life and it'll get interesting. Have a study plan that works ! Make flashcards, watch YouTube videos on the subject you're learning and ask your teacher for help ! Premed includes math and science courses but many medical schools like if you take humanities. Watch other YouTubers who are in premed currently and ask what majors they're taking or use Google !

ANT (1 год назад)
Hey Jamie! I am currently in grade 10 living in Canada. My grades have been straight As but as the classes become more challenging I think I'm getting less confident. Also my high school only offers 3 AP classes which isn't great. I really want to go to the states for university but I'm scared because there is so much competition and pressure to do well and get into a good school. My goal is to study biological sciences, but to me right now it seems like I am too ambitious for it to be possible. Whenever I watch your videos, I feel more hopeful and that if I work really hard, I might be able to achieve my goals!

You are my idol. I started my freshman year of college away from home in the fall of 2015. After one semester I decided I hated being away from home, and was unsure of my future, so I packed up my stuff and quit. Now its about two years later and I'm just now ready to go back to college. Ive always secretly played around with the idea of being a doctor, and over these last couple months its been really sticking with me. Although I am not 100% sure I want to pursue a career in medicine, I definitely think it is a good possibility. Being out of school for a while has made me a bit hesitant to go back, and also makes me doubt my abilities even though I know that I am intelligent. I found your channel about a year ago and it has been breath of fresh air. Just watching your video about your journey from high school to med school made me open my eyes because you said you had struggled a bit in school... and look at you know. You're becoming a doctor. You're almost done with med school! You are such an inspiration. I remember in that video you mentioned that you didn't have an initial plan of what you wanted to do for a career. I was undecided about what I wanted to do for so long, and it makes me confident to hear that you started off confused and unclear about your future path too. I hope you accomplish everything you ever dreamed of. I hope I can too! Best of luck!!!

So in america you need to already have a degree to study medicine? in the UK (where i'm starting medical school at Leicester) you can go straight from sixth form- age 16-18. There are courses which are postgraduate only such as in Warwick but they are the minority. that said- the medicine courses still require a good score in the UKCAT or BMAT exams and are 5-6 years instead of 4 years

Hi I have a question? Is there a way to get out of remedial chemistry/intro to chemistry (which doesn't satisfy the premed req). I don't think I'd have time or money for an extra class. Would my premed advisor allow for it? They already registered me for Intro for the fall semester (I'm a freshman). We registered the classes during orientation and I'm not sure if I can still switch out of Intro and into Gen Chemistry. Thank you!!

My average gpa is 3.33 and all the schools i want to get into say they require a minimum of 3.8 gpa which is really discouraging. I want to go into science because i have a true passion for it and in the future i will decide whether to continue science or to transition into medical. This video lifted up my hopes at least a bit lol. Thanks!

This makes me feel much better about having a 3.75 gpa (high school). I moved around a lot so my credits got messed up and I struggled bc I'm an International Baccalaureate student and my grades are mostly B's. but there are people with 4.3s so it made me feel like a failure. But seeing this video just makes me feel more confident.

Thanks for this video! It gives me some hope because I wasn't the best student either in high school, but now that I'm in college, I'm working really hard to try to get into med school! You give me so much motivation!

oh my gosh, this is such a weight off my shoulders. I have a 4.34 gpa (high school) because i have so many extracurriculars (2 theatre classes and 1 choir class) and i've been so stressed that i won't make it into the schools of my dreams. just hearing that i don't have to have a 4.7 makes everything so much better.
