Really though, I'm about to pull my hair out my head. Some of you may have read my previous posts, I don't post much, I usually lurk around and try to gather advice others have given but I think my situation is slightly more detailed than others. I'm in New Orleans and just finished my first year at UNO. I am not pleased with UNO's Biology degree, I think it is rather a waste of my time that useful other than the fact that core classes for advanced degrees are integrated. I am not excited about botany. The problem is, I like a lot of health related jobs. I could see myself an MD, DDS, even a nurse. Cliche, I like to help people. I am capable of grueling study hours, I don't mind the lengthy school time because, well, time is gonna go by anyways! For my NOLA/LA peoples, perhaps you could answer me better. Should I consider paying to go to Loyola, Tulane, or Holy Cross? Their biology programs are much more appealing and less "old school?" for lack other better words to describe UNO. I have the Louisiana "TOPS" scholarship that pays my way to any state university like LSU, UNO, ULL, Delgado, etc. It will put forth some for private universities. If I did leave UNO, I'd be paying A LOT for Loyola or Tulane, like 20k a year. YIKES!! And still I would need loans for med or dent school. I don't want to set back my loans tooo far. I'm honestly a little scared of debt. I really like LSU med and dent programs down here and since UNO is an LSU ran school, we get preference to LSU graduate programs. So that's a bonus.. I guess. I have a 3.88 cumulative, 3.67 fall 07, and 4.0 for spring 08. And I need to make up my mind by like Tuesday for summer classes.. Anat & Phys.. Bios II.. precalc alg.. english..? UGGH!!! Someone just please help!!!!! I'm a wee freshman!!
