I have completed 3 courses of grad school but am unhappy in my program because I am not pursuing what I love. I have spent a lot of time thinking about the regrets I would have if I didn't pursue Veterinary Medicine, but felt locked into pursuing my master's for 2 more years for fear of disappointing my parents. In February I applied, was accepted, and registered to take prereq classes. Now I have a huge decision to make: do i stay in the master's program? or do I focus on the prereq courses? I'm only 24 and I know that if I pursue this Master's Degree for 2 more years (that is focused on working with Animal Police to rescue animals) that I will regret it. But I'm also afraid of walking away from this master's degree for feeling like i quit something i started and disappointing my family. Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated! ***I have edited this entry since the first time i published it b/c my thoughts were jumbled and unclear...just like my thought processes recently as I stress over what to do!
