Hey people.


So I have some questions that I honestly don't know who to ask to and whether or not to actually persuade it. I graduated from my undergrad and now I am going to apply grad school. I am thinking of going back to the medical field after grad school, but I'm not sure if that is such a good idea. I tried the premed program during my undergrad and although I enjoyed learning, my grades in class wasn't that good, compared to my lab grades, and few of the professors didn't like me too much because of that. So it was a bad experience for me. At that time I had a hard time realizing what the problem was, but now I know and I think I can fix it. Should I actually try going back and risk it or no?


My second is whether or not I can take the premed courses at a community college? I already got a bachelor degree, so do I need to go back to a a college/university to take it again or can I just take them at a community college.


And finally my last question. This might be a foolish question, but I want to know. Unfortunately I did not finish my premed courses during my undergrad. I'm thinking of majoring english in grad school for certain reasons. If I do that, does that mean that I do not have to take an english course after going back to the states if I am going back to do the premed?


Sorry for the long questions and thank you for your time reading and answering them.

How badly do you want to be a doctor? if "a lot" then yes.

Should I actually try going back and risk it or no?

Yes.

Take the English course in a US school. Things overseas don't count.

Let me say this, community college course work is not going to be counted against you, might as well take the coursework at a place you can afford. And yes take all the courses in the US.
