I was just wondering if you have alot of choices in medical school? For example if you were thinking about being a psychiatrist in pre-med and then when you got into medical school changed your mind, would this be a problem? I'm kind of woried that when I get into med school I wont know what type of doctor to become. I would really love a reply.:)

The truth is that many students don't know what they want to do until they start their M3-4 years. When you rotate through different specialties, you will get a much better idea of what type of patients you like & what type of medicine you see yourself practicing.

So yeah...happens all the time that people change their mind from when they are pre-meds.
