I've done it. I've figured out what I want to do for the rest of my life. I can't believe it took me this long!
I've always liked helping people. Those who know me well can vouch for it. I like to listen, I like to be there for people, I go out of my way to help them and I like doing all that. And ever since I was a little kid, I've had a slight hero-complex (I used to have dreams about single-handedly ending wars - especially WWII, bringing peace to Israel, etc).
So what better path in life than...medical school?
Okay, so I pass out at the sight of blood and I hate needles - but these are fears that can be overcome, right?
Come on, why not? All I have to do is take calculus and a whole bunch of science classes, and that will probably require me to stay extra at Stern, but...so? I've already got horrible handwriting...!
