I'm just curious as to how many people chose podiatry over other fields of medicine from the get go. I didn't initially look at it because I knew that my Dad had planned to go into it before his Dad died which left him take care of all his little brothers. I felt like I couldn't consider it or I would be fulfilling his dream. I'm sure that probably sounds nutty. Then my friend encouraged me to take a serious look at it. Luckily, I listened.
