It'll be quite an honor if you could one day use its facilities (other than the bathrooms).
I think I've heard of that building before. My cousin also went to U-M for her PharmD degree.

So many beautiful buildings there. I remember going to U-M for the same cousin's wedding last summer. The only place I really got to see was the Michigan Union building where the wedding ceremony was held. I believe this is where President Kennedy spoke about his plans for the Peace Corps?

Not in my opinion. I think the main thing about a medical education is that it is considered preferable to do your residency at another medical school. This can't be carved in granite anywhere, but I've heard that numerous times.

I'm only on my first year of Spanish, and I plan on taking Spanish (I, II, III) the rest of high school (if all goes as planned).

But that's a problem in itself. I also want to take EMT my senior year, but the way I've tried setting up my "four year plan" for high school, it might not work. The only class I can afford to not take my senior year would be Spanish III, so I can fit EMT in.

I don't know if I want to risk not meeting any of the requirements for a class that I actually need.

I don't know what to do. I don't really want to wait until the end of my junior year to see how everything goes because it might be too late then.

I thought I recall you saying elsewhere that you were fluent in several languages. Most schools will allow you to "comp out" of a language/s if you just pass a test. Have you looked into that possibility?

Don't believe everything you think

Lightbulb MD and Residency

The philosophy is that you are more well-rounded as a physician if you are exposed to more than one educational approach. Typically, any given school will teach undergraduates (those working on their MDs) and the post-graduate interns and residents in the same manner.

Also, a lot of people feel that an MD from one school is equivalent to one from any other program. The only real differences between medical students (country-wide) are their grades. It is the specialty residency that makes, or breaks, you.

So, a bit of advice: Bust your hind end in whatever college and medical school you attend, so you will maximize your chances for a prestigeous residency. The best ones might not all be Ivy League (Johns Hopkins, Duke, Stanford and Mayo come to mind), but a lot of them are, and all of these are extremely competitive to get into.

I hope this makes sense!

The one medical school with which I am intimately familiar includes a non-ambulance EMT class in the 1st year. If I were you, I'd be more concerned with advanced high school biology, chemistry, or physics if those are offered.

These college and high school requirements are pushing a 4th language on me.

Ah yes. I'm currently in Anatomy & Physiology. Which leads me to my next question, should I take AP Biology, or AP Chemistry my senior year?
