I need some non-pre-med advisor advise regarding some skeletons in the closet... My question regards whether I should mention my previous intentions to go to PA school in my med school interview or application essay. The problem is that I spent my junior year at another liberal arts school that offered Anatomy and Physiology because it is a requirement for PA school. While I was there, I decided that I wanted to be a doctor, not a PA, so now I am preparing to apply this coming spring. I'm not sure how to address this, because I think I could come off as doubting my own capabillities, unsure of myself, etc, or it could show that I took this decision seriously, and ultimately learned a lot about myself and what I'm capable of in the process. Should I take the offensive, and mention this in my essay/interview, or try to cover it up/make up some other excuse about why I went JYA there to save face? Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
