was it worth it?

The classes are full of difficult information thrown at you quickly. You test regulalrly. For most physicians, med school is one of the most difficult things they've ever done.
Most of the classes are predetermined so everyone graduates with similar training/knowledge. Your student placements will vary, but this isn't in classroom learning.
Worth it is a totally individual thing. Most physicians I know are happy doing what they do, or at least are satisfied. I know one physician who quit in his forties to pursue other things, but he's the only one I really know of who was totally dissatisfied with his career.
Being a physician or nurse is nothing like TV. There are very few mystery diseases. It is not a catastrophe of the week. You aren't bathed in golden light when you care for a NICU baby. There aren't chiristmas miracles. ER started off pretty realistic and then went to lala land.

You're skipping a small detail: before "med school" comes four years of college undergraduate studies. I guarantee you the reality of healthcare is NOT like TV. TV is an entertainment medium - not an educational one.
