So i've gotten accepted into pharmacy school. Everything goes as plan except for one thing... I keep having this nagging feeling in the back of my mind that I should've gone to pre-med. The interview was surreal. The pharmacy weekend was bland and boring. I couldn't picture myself being a pharmacist. I really couldn't at all. But then the thought of "starting over" scares me. Actually, I only need to take the MCAT and gain some clinical experiment. As I sat on the river boat "trying" to mingle with my future pharmacy classmates, I feel out of place..more like I shouldn't be here. At some points, I thought of delaying a year to study for MCAT and see if I can get into med school by next year. If not, then I can go to pharmacy in 2008 instead. I think I posted something like this before and tried to squish this nagging feeling. There are lots of complications with this decision. For once, my parents would kill me if I decide to take a year off. People think I'm crazy but this feeling really bothers me but I don't have the courage to back off and follow my heart. My parents keep saying doctors do not have a life and you can't be a good mother if you're so busy all the time. I don't know. Has it been done before? Can you have both? A good career and a good family? BTW, I would like to go into pediactrics but it's been known to have a hectic life which you're always being on call. For some reasons, I dread starting pharmacy school. I was helping my friend studying for the PCAT few months ago and met this guy. He told me he quitted Vet school after a year and his wife quitted pharmacy school after two years. Now they make good money as a computer engineers and are very happy with their decisions. My friend who is a dental student plans to quit dental school to start a business with his friend. He has been working with his friend during dental school. Now that the business goes really well, he could careless about dental school anymore because he doesn't have the passion in it in the first place. I don't know if it's a sign but I would hate to waste my life not doing something I love. Does anyone have second thought? At what point in your life do you decide to give it up and take a risk?
