I'm a Pre-Med student with four daughters. My support system is rather tiny and it's starting to weigh down on me a bit. How does a typical day look for you guys? What are some good "tricks" for managing time?

Well Mrs. Pre-Med there's not many of us out there, thus you will likely not have many replies. I am a single mom of three, 13,11, 10 now in my second year of residency. I made it through medical school occasional school. However, now that I am in residency I see I would not be able to do what I do with out my mom. You will need a reliable individual for this. Finances are different for single parents. Trying to afford daycare/nanny and rent are very difficult. I did it and am certain there have been others. But be aware compromises must be made and balance may feel like settling.
it is really really hard. it kind of depends how much of a hard ass you are and type A you are.
medicine i am starting to think it's not it's all cracked up to be. my friends are all sorta bitter and cynical at this point and we are all lamer people after 4 years.
