the experience

This forum has been really very helpful to me in answering so many of my questions - so thanks to all that have responded to me.

Another rather vague and personal question: Can anyone out there describe to me the medical school experience? That is, if someone were to ask you: What’s it like being in medical school? What would you say? I would be really interested in hearing from people at all levels of study - 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th year as well as experiential differences across MD and DO programs. As I have mentioned, in previous posts, I am very interested in applying to a DO program. Primarily because the osteopathic perspective just resonates with my thoughts about medicine in general.

Anyhow, I think information about the experience of being in med school (e.g., with or without partner, wife, kids, the biggest upsets, excitements, etc) would not only be helpful to me, but to others who fish around this forum.
