It all begins in highschool. Not that you have to "know" that you wish to be a physician then. Not hardly. But you must have a basic ability and desire to learn, ...and you must have applied yourself enough to at least be able to then enter undergraduate school and "do the pre-med work necessary" to prepare for taking the MCAT application exams. If one sluffs off early on...and doesn't get the basics down in junior high and high school,...it makes it very difficult, if not impossible, to prepare for attempting to be accepted into medical school later. At the same time, not everyone in medical school went the strict "premed" study route in college. If you are smart enough, and if you applied yourself in other study areas,...such that you end up knowing enough about physics, math, Biology, chemistry, etc....to do well on the MCAT application exams....you too may apply and be accepted to med school. But, there's no getting around it, you must be willing to study hard and willing to put off many of the "fun things" until much much later. Discipline is key!
