My issue is just how long the process is. I can handle a heavy course load, but I'm basically gonna be in school until I'm 30.
Yeah, most advisors want you to start thinking/ preparing about the med school since at the end of your sophomore year. Getting into med schools is like one of the most difficult things ever, they say
Same here. I don't mind a shit load of work, but I really hate the long-term years that you have to spend at school/ studying/ doing research, etc

Cool. So we are in the same boat, I am guessing
As for studying tips, it's easy: finish your work first, then do whatever you want
Yeah, that's pretty much what I do
In all seriousness, form a study group. It definitely helps, especially when you are doing something like Chemistry workshop, Calculus problems. Plus, I try to finish some of the work during breaks between classes at library cause the atmosphere gives you better focus. At home, I am mostly meh.
The only problem I have sometimes is my self-indulgence. It's so hard
