Ok - I went to see the college guidance counseler at our local 2 yr community college. Mentioned that I my main goal is to eventually become an MD. Got the same response from him as I get from everybody else. They all look at this bright-eyed high school student and think "He crazy! How can he know what he wants? Doesn't he know its at least 12 YEARS of study (or trench warfare, or prison - whatever name you like) At any rate, I appreciated his input, but he was not as helpful as I had hoped he would be. So I am once again poring over college catalogs, trying to decide what to study and when to study it. I realize that Med schools usually have basic prerequisites, and I gotta know - what's the point in having a major? Why couldn't a feller' just get the basics and go for it? (Is that what they call "premed"?) I feel pretty stupid asking this, cause I figure the answer is a no-brainer. So come on, make me look bad!
