I'll keep this as short as possible. All of my life I wanted to become a doctor, until my dad founded an oil and gas service company and I started working for him at 16 years old. I still wanted to become a doctor, however now the electronics and petroleum industry sparked interest in me. After acceptance into a university, I began in engineering, switched to pre med, and with the horrible state of mind I had at the time, flunked out with a 0.7 GPA. Mind you, I finished high school with a 3.8. This was unlike me, and my uncertainty led me to not caring about my education. Shortly after that, two of my close relatives died of Alzheimer's disease. This hit hard, and made me remember that at one point I wanted to pursue medicine. After flunking out of college, I reentered into a technical program in electronics and excelled with a 4.0. Before that, our company's electrical engineer died and we were left without a programmer. I learned our system's programming language in its entirety and began designing systems at only 20 years old. My proven work experience has given me a known name in our industry. However, at 21 years old, I still want to pursue medicine. The mere thought of being an M.D. or D.O. is so amazing to me because of the responsibility one carries. I carry a good bit of weight on my shoulders by running the entire technical operations of our company, however I still feel empty inside. I will have a 60k annual salary in January and I am only 21. So here I ask all of you professionals and prospects, is it worth giving up all I have in front of me for medicine? Returning to school, retaking every flunked class, etc. Would I be able to make it into med school after all of this?
