Hi, I am looking for some advice on an interesting situation that I am in and any advice would be greatly apprectiated. I am very serious about going to med school, but I only realized it late in my undergraduate education. While in undergrad, I had planned on going to physical therapy school after I graduated. I had always toyed around with the idea of going to med school, but I for some reason I never thought that I would have a good shot at getting in. By the time I was applying to PT school I had a 3.75 GPA and I have a significant amount of experience in a medical related field. When it came time to apply to PT school, I had had a major dilemma on my hands. I knew that I wanted to go to med school but do I give up PT school? Or do I go to PT school because that is what I had planned on doing. Well, to try and keep the story as short as possible, I am currently in my first semester Physical Therapy school. The only thing that kept me from applying to med school was the two years or so that it would take for me to take a couple classes, take the MCAT, apply and interview. Plus, i didn't want to "jump the gun" and give up on it for what may be an impulse. But 1 1/2 years later, I know it is not. The only classes have left to take are the 2 semesters of organic since it wasn't required by all PT schools. I did have had a significant amount of experience with Organic in Cell and Molecular Bio classes and I think I will be able to do well in it (at least a B, good chance at an A). This is really where my problem comes in....while I am at PT school, all I can think about is going to med school. I wanted to get some feedback as to what my chances are at getting in. I graduated from Purdue with a 3.75, Phi Beta Kappa etc. My only academic blemish is a C in my second semester of Physics. Other than that, I have 17 semster hours of A's in Bio classes and B's in Inorganic chem. At times it is just hard to stay motivated in PT school, knowing that my heart is telling me to go to med school. Do I drop out of PT school and get started on Organic right away? Or would it look better to finish my Master's, try and take the Organic classes next summer, and apply the year after? I am torn between the two scenarios. PT school is very demanding, and at times I question wheter or not I want to put myself through this twice? Plus it is going to cost me $50,000 for PT school. But on the other hand, I will have a great background going into med school. I will have taken a great deal of medical neuro, physiology, gross anatomy, etc. in PT school and that will help me excell in med school as well as a physician (I hope to go into Orthopedics) but do I want to take all of these classes twice? Would it look bad to med schools if I dropped out? Or would it just look that much better if I stayed in? Or would they not care at all? If I stayed in PT school, I will be 27 when I would start med school. If I dropped out I could get in as early as 25. Is it worth it? Do I have a good shot at getting into a good to decent med school with a C in physics? If I drop out now, and then end up not getting into med school....I won't really have a back up plan. If I stay in, I will have to take both semester's of Organic next summer. They cram both semester's into either 8 or 12 weeks over the summer. So it will be tough. Any suggestions or ideas? Sorry for this being so long. I have already talked to the premed advisor at the school I am at now and she was not much help. I am not in Indiana anymore so I don't have access to any advisors from my undergrad. So, again, any ideas or thought would be greatly appreciated.
