This last semester I started to doubt my decision to go to medical school a little bit. After taking biology, I noticed I hated memorizing, which I hear is what a lot of medical school is composed of. I prefer more problem solving type of learning, such as the type you do in physics or math. In addition, I am not sure if it is worth both the time and money investment (4 years med school, about 4 years residency). I would like to have SOME sort of life during my 20's, i.e. continue running at somewhat of a competitive level and have some sort of social life. But from what I have heard med school students and residents are completely consumed by their work and career, to the point that they have very little social life or time to focus on anything but medicine.
So basically my question is this: is becoming a doctor worth the sacrifice?
