Switching Gears

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?

Seriously.

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...!

Wow. Go for it! But also consider other roles in the health field, such as physician's assistant or psychologist. Shorter schooling, less tuition, better hours, excellent pay, growth industry, challenging environment, similar satisfaction.
