For the past few years i have had my heart set on being a surgeon. the complexity of the human body just fascinated me. I wanted so badly to start learning about anything associated with medicine.
call me a dumbass, or an easily swayed itiot, but i got interested in medicine by watching House M.D. That wasn't it though. All it did was open my eyes to medicine. My mom is a doctor so i have her to ask questions.
I just recently watched all 5 seasons of Entourage, and that show opened my eyes to the business world. No, i dont want to become some movie star agent. Yes, i know its highly unlikely that i can become that successful.
I was fascinated with business without even knowing it for a long time. I started numerous small businesses during my early high school years that included fixing ipods, to selling tennis rackets on ebay, to other odd-jobs that i like to consider as small business transactions.
I think like a businessman. I think ahead, and see the opportunities. I know the quickest way to make an A in a class in which the teacher is notorious for giving bad grades. I excel in math, and my memory is not the sharpest.
Isn't everything going wrong for me in the sense of becoming a doctor? Sure i have a good grade in my AP bio class. Sure i enjoy the material we learn. and sure, its my favorite class even if it is my hardest class. However, i have to work my ass off studying twice as long just to make 5 more points than the next guy.
I know a lot about medicine. I don't know a lot about business. I can list off the top 20 pre-med programs in the country, but i cant even guess what the top business school is. (U of Penn) I know all the classes you take when you're pre-med. I know what happens every step of the way in the medicine program. It seems like i know absolutely nothing about the business programs.
Should i try to convince myself to go to medicine? should i research business? Are there any books anyone can recommend that talks more about the things i would be learning if i decided to be a business major? Anything helps. thanks http://forum.bodybuilding.com/archive/index.php/t-111493151.html
