The reason I want to become a doctor is because of Doogie Howser, M.D.

I wish someone had the balls to use that as a response when asked "Why do you want to be a physician?," JUST to see the look on the interviewer's face. :D

I've always figured that if I were to get in somewhere I want before an interview, I would respond either:
1) the money
2) Girls love guys in white coats
3) I really like the TV show "scrubs"
4) I thought it would be easy
5) My mom and dad are making me do it..I REALLY want to be a dancer!!!
6) Cutting people open is...i mean...sounds cool
7) Easy access to drugs
8) So I can be just like you.
9) Everybody else is doing it and im a follower
10) You've just given me number 10

I actually met Doogie Howser (Neil Patrick Harris) at a bar in Hollywood and had a beer with him - and that's what I told him. I think he thought I was completely crazy. Well, he's not far off.

1) the money

There are people who have said this and have gotten in with this response. A friend of mine actually got a reply from his interviewer saying that it was the most refreshingly honest answer that he had heard all day...and he did get in.

"It's probably the only way I can afford this drug habit"

This made me make that snorting, stifle-the-laugh-because-other-people-are-sleeping, but gurgling-and-choking-on-cherry-pepsi sort of noise. :)

Why do I want to be a doctor?
Astronaut was taken... and they tell me Fairy Princess isn't a "real" job.

Why do you want to be a doctor?

1. Didn't do well on the LSATs
2. Not smart enough to be an engineer
3. I like golf and free vacations
4. Springboard to a career in politics
5. Always dreamed of being a CNN medical correspondent
