I'm a prospective medical student, and am currently strongly considering applying to Oxford to study Medicine. However, I have a few misgivings, and would like some opinions from other peoples' experiences. My main concerns are these:
That the medical course does not include practical lessons at the beginning - is it not frustrating to not be able to experience patient contact?
The social life on Campus (I believe this is a concern of many people, simply because of the prestigious reputation)
The cost of living and the pressures placed on grades by being surrounded with highly academic students.
