    Well, a small number of people do drop out. Drop out rates are very low - whether that is because of the sort of people who do medicine or the course itself being great, or a combination of the two or something completely different I dunno.

    Agreed.

    What clinical experience i have had has been very fun though, so not put off overall.

    Are you still pre-clinical? I wish we had more than just GP!

    Medicine in general :p: I think I'll really love clinical stuff and working, just science in general doesn't interest me so until it's put into practice I'm likely to be bored!

    See post 8 :p: I think it's more me personally not being interested in it than it being objectively boring though

    90% of the stuff you learn at medschool won't be needed when you practice. But the sciences are the most interesting part in medicine anyways!

    I love it.

    We learn loads :p: it's not all put to use now, you learn clinical examples for extension material, but we don't really do much (only GP) until 4th year at our uni. It's different at others though! If you get bored of Medicine you'll probably get bored of Dentistry too so I'd go for Med :p:
