I have been analysing my options of going on a post-bacc course and the whole medical school deal, or getting involved in the business world. I know my parents want me to get involved in business (follow my fathers footsteps), and I am very sure I could be very successful at it. I flew through bachelors degree in business, and graduating at 19. This means all the thing that I think we all want like home ownership, new cars, settling down, etc are not that far away. I also have an established network of many up and coming business leaders, which will help me in this career. However I keep thinking about wanting to become a doctor. Every plan I have made in the last 4-5 years had an exit point to run away and go to medical school. A medical career in the long run would be incredible rewarding, and something I would definitely enjoy, however with it all the perks of the business world go. While I am living in a small apartment, study hard, increasing debt exponentially all my friends will be advancing in their careers, starting families, buy houses, settling down and living life. My biggest concern is if I am not able to get into med school after my post bacc course (I keep hearing about the horror of organic chemistry and chemistry in JHS [the last time I took chemistry] was my worst subject) then I would have wasted time, and delayed all the good things. Has anyone else ever had these thoughts? How do you look at the ups and downs of the a medical career, especially the length of training and cost?
