Mine's not. I should qualify that... it's not to me. The problem is, a professor I really respect pulled some strings to get me this research job. I had told him I would like to work in his lab, but he didn't have any paying positions available, and I really needed some money. To my surprise, he convinced the professor I'm working for to take a chance on me, and told her I was his best student ever. So, now I'm in a botany lab working with cotton (which I am not remotely interested in), and everyone is trying to convince me to get a PhD instead of an MD. I don't know what to do; I am so not interested in the research that I dread going to work every day. Although it isn't what I wanted, should I just shut up and role with the punches and see if it pays off later?
