I have been debating whether or not I should just forget about med. school right now to pursue a PhD in Cancer Biology. I used to be interested in anesthesiology but I've shifted focus to radiation oncology after a personal experience (family member requiring the svcs. of a radiation oncologist). My GPA will be 3.50 and 3.43 BCPM by the time I apply to medical school if I apply after college. Obviously there will be little hope for getting into an MD/PhD program for me and I really want to get the PhD. Would it just be a waste of my time? Thanks.
