How hard is it i med school with children?
I am 22 and have a 2year old daughter and another baby on the way which is due in march. I will be applying to med school in 3 years.
How hard do you all find it being parents in med school? Is it near impossable to juggle it all?

I am a father of 2 and graduated med school this year.
I managed it with a huge amount of support from my wife and mother. It will not be easy.
Plan your childcare carefully not only while you are at med school but for when you graduate.
It is not impossible as there were a few in my year who were parents but they all had pretty good support in terms of kids. Med school will take up a lot of evening time during exams and term time.
ISaying all that... if you are determined and passionate about doing medicine go for it.
