Hi everyone this is my first post from a long-time lurker. I am currently 24 yrs old and extremely interested in making medicine a career of mine, with orthopedic and sports medicine as a specialty. Overall, I am looking for some advice to back up my personal research on the journey itself. Background: Throughout my whole life, I have always been interested in science/medicine because my Dad works in the medical device field and have been around doctors most of the time. However, during my college years, I fell off track for a little bit. I attended a big school with no direction of where I wanted to go career-wise, didn't care about class or grades and halfway through it I kind of "woke up". I then transferred from that school to a smaller school to continue playing baseball and focus on my grades providing that athletics gave me a sense of structure. During my time there I brought my GPA from a 2.0 to a now current undergrad GPA of 2.98 and graduated this past spring of 2018 with a BS in Business Administration. During my last two years, I became interested in finance for the wrong reasons and began applying to whatever job was related to that industry. I have had no luck in securing a job so far considering how hard the finance industry is to break into especially being that I graduated from a sub-par college with a business degree. Throughout this time after school, I have had ample time to think about what I really want to do with my life and I've come to realize that finance or business does not fit me at all. More recently, I had a second "wake up call" and I got into a pretty bad car accident which put me in the hospital. While there I kept thinking how interesting medicine actually was. It was amazing to me how the doctors patching me up were able to put their learned skills to work, heal me and help me survive. The accident made me realize that your life could be taken away at any second, so why not do something that is interesting to yourself and rewarding in the sense that you are also able to help people. That being said, I've come to the conclusion that I will attend school again for a PostBac program with the intention of attending Med School after. I understand that the journey is extremely tough and grueling but I believe I'm ready to hit it head-on. I have already called most PostBac programs, talked to admissions and the majority of them said that they accept people based on a holistic approach. They said that if I provide a solid case for myself with great letters of recommendation I have just as much of a chance as any. So I ask you guys, is this true? What programs do you guys think are practical? What can I do to improve my case? Any advice is welcome and much appreciated.
