As a Student Pilot, should I wait to get my medical till just before I solo?

Great question!  If you are going to solo in an aircraft that requires its pilot to hold a medical certificate (something other than an ultralight or a Light Sport Aircraft), then you will be required to pass a medical.  Your medical certificate IS your Student Pilot Certificate, and you will be required to carry it during all of your solo flights.  Should you get it well in advance of your first solo?  Chances are that you'll be soloing in under 20 hours, so there's most likely no "well before" timeframe!  Most students wait to get their medical a few days prior to their solo, but you certainly can get it, sooner.  Doing so might give you the peace of mind in knowing you've passed your medical, so that you're not stressing about that just prior to your first solo!
