Smile Hey there!

Leaving home is never easy Your plans of going to the USA to do your residency imply a lot of things some of those things might be a problem sometimes, like all the money you spend taking the exams and sometimes preparing for them (books, programs, courses, etc). You'll make a commitment with yourself to give your best for a determined amount of time, you'll basically endure your life to long hours of reading, struggling and suffering to then face the examination and only hope for the best. It's hard! but you know what, it's just a matter of organizing yourself... is this what you want? are you willing to make sacrifices? then please go for it because this is your time to fight for the things you want and you dont want to spend the rest of your life wondering "if you should've done it". Prepare yourself, study hard, study with passion, it might be hard but what matters is how good you do in the exam and how much you really want this, the rest of the story can only be written by you. Make sure you know what you're signing up on whatever you decide... leaving or staying home. Good luck! -Nobody said it'll be easy but it'll be freaking worth it
