"When would I take the MCAT? (Will I even have time to study?)" 
"Am I sure medical school is the right path for me?" 
"What will I do if I don’t choose to go directly into a program?" 

There were so many questions and considerations that overwhelmed me. I decided that applying while I was in school was not the right thing for me to do, and that ended up being one of the best choices I've ever made (even though I had no clue if what I was doing what was right for me).
