that you want to be a doctor
Are you considering applying to pharmacy school but are concerned about job prospects when you graduate? Join us on Wednesday, July 28th at 8 PM Eastern to hear from three PharmDs about their experiences and options outside of retail pharmacy.

All i know is that since I was 8 i wanted to be a doctor, like my parents. But when I got to college, and my grades went sour, and my dream of going to med school here became a farfetched dream. I hope I get in somewhere in the US, other wise I will go out of the country to be MD. But I will be an MD nonetheless.
Did that confuse any one?

Personally, I think the question should be: how sure are you that you want to give up the next 6 to 8 years of your life to become a doctor?

The laws of statistics and sampling dictate that all things are underdetermined and that you can never be 100% sure. In fact, when sampling the small amount of experiences in my life compared to the actual experience of being a doctor, I can only be a little greater than 0% sure I want to be an MD. However, I'm a little less sure I want to be any other profession. So by deduction, becoming a doctor is on the top of my list.
