It's All Too Much

Just as I'm starting to think about what schools to apply to and how to write my personal statement, Kevin MD writes that 21% of medical students are depressed.  I'm heading into the application process with eyes wide open after talking to several med students, and fully expect the next several years of my life to full of studying and stress.  That said, I'm usually a pretty happy guy and don't want to end up a depressed, miserable burnout with a white coat.  

Maybe it's the fact that a quarter of US medical students graduate with over $200,000 in debt.  Now that's depressing.
