SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello all. I am currently going to college in the fall, and with that comes a lot of thinking as to where my future lies. I've always been interested in being a vet.. I love love animals which is probably obvious if I'm interested in being a vet, and for some reason I find medical fields very "cool". Something about putting latex gloves on and for the majority of the time knowing what you are doing and being able to help people or animals just attracts me. Here are my concerns. I know that for any medical field one must be proficient in math and sciences.. well those are my worst subjects.. math more so than science. I don't know what kind of math is involved in DVM but I struggle with things like pre-calculus, and trig.. not sure why you'd need to know the cosine of an angle to be a vet, but idk. Sciences I'm a bit better at.. Biology I did ok, and chemistry I disliked, but I feel that had a lot to do with my teacher. I realize that you can't simply become a vet just because you love animals, and that it involves a lot of work.. but yes, those are my worries. The other career I am pondering is running my father's business. He is a videographer/editor for things such as weddings, bat/bar mitzvah's etc.. in NYC where there is a big market for this, and he makes more than the average vet. This would mean that eventually I would also make more if I take that route, especially if the plans that I have for the business become a reality. So while vet salaries aren't bad at all, I could be making almost double should I take this route. I know this comes down to money vs. doing what you love, but perhaps some of you have been on the same boat.
