I think you're absolutely right. They say in medicine that to only go into surgery if you can't imagine yourself being happy doing anything else. I really think that medicine in general is the same way. Especially now, as there are numerous alternate pathways to similar ends. (PA, NP, MPH, research, some PhD programs, etc.)
I think that the worst thing we pre-meds can do is rush off to medical school without taking the realist view on the profession, only to become disillusioned later on.
