Not sure if they'd ask this. Have never heard of it, anyway. I think they assume most people are only thinking about med school.

pretty sure they dont ask on AMCAS...

it really depends what secondary you're filling out to answer the question... my hunch is that *most* secondaries dont ask it...

Now interviewers I dont think would ask it either because they want to know why you're interested in medicine... not why you're interested in something else...

but the question does come to mind , if you're applying to other professional schools, you've gotta think if you're heart is really in becoming a doctor in the first place...

just my $0.02 :D

It's definitely not on AMCAS. Out of 23 schools I applied to last year and a dozen interviews, the question never came up.
