Okay, after I take the GED test and recieve my GED transcript, than what?
College of course, but what should I try to major in? I know that it doesnt really matter what you major in for your undergrad, aslong as you graduate with a good GPA..But wouldnt it be wise to take classes that are required to enter med school? like biology ect. ?

Also, what are my chances of a University accepting me with a GED?
If a university does not accept me, I plan on attending a Community College.

I just need opinions and advice/tips regarding pursuing a carrer as a doctor.

Tell me anything and everything...

Courses I should take..
Study tips...
Tips to help determination, sence a lot of people out there try to wreck your dreams by saying you "cant" do this or cant do that... lol..

Thanks,

Major in whatever it is that you like, just in case you do change your mind. Yes, it might seem strange now that you could ever reconsider your career goals, but trust me, it'll probably change a few more times before you settle on medicine again or even something else.

yeah I tried.

okay how about this. what are your interested in?

you've already stated that you suck at math, so that rules out a math major, chemistry major and physics major, engineering and business.

so you are left with Biology, History, English, and Art. Which one shall it be?

Thanks Camo!

Well im interested in Biology, and im sure a major in biology would look good when it comes to getting accepted to a med school. It will most likely be Biology.

Im also interested in "Communications"... So thats also an option.

Decisions,Descisions...lol

Communications is good, but biology is better. I am a bio major and I love it. Anyways, either one will be fine, if you choose the previous make sure to do well in the science pre reqs. Best of luck.
