You're competing with gunners who are doped up on ritalin, so you have to really enjoy the material (similar to law school I suppose, in that respect). That being said, the IQs of attorneys and physicians are, on average, indistinguishable. This pissing contest of whether law students could have been medical students is silly. It's a different career path.
I was premed until junior year when i decided to switch. Not trying to be a jackass, but I'll argue that my 3.88 taking 40+ hours of premed stuff is a hell of a better accomplishment than a 4.0 for someone who was thinking law school the whole time..
hopefully adcomms agree lol
