Eight months (EIGHT MONTHS) before residency applications are due to the begin my school has us filling out a questionnaire full of what I find to be rather silly questions. But they didn't ask me about the questions or whether or not I would actually like to fill the bloody thing out, so here I am. Yet again, answering this question: Why do you want to be a doctor?
I will post my actual answer after I actually write it (again). One would think that after answering this several times (but the answer changes the further along into the quagmire you go) it would be easier and would not require at least a page. In short, it does not. Sometimes I just want to say "Why? Because shut up that's why!!!"
