What career would be best?

Alright, so I'll start by saying that I'm currently a sophomore in Highschool. We recently got schedulers for next year's classes, which caused this question to pop up: what do I want to do when I graduate? I am a lover of the sciences, so the many fields of science leave me with many options. At this moment, I am stuck between biomedical engineering, and genetic engineering. I've read online what each job entails, and both seem good to me. If I had to choose, I would choose genetics though. Does this career have a good outlook, IE, would it have good salary, job openings, etc? Now, my main predicament is my class choices. In terms of sciences, I already have biology and chemistry under my belt. Next year, physics is mandatory, and I'll also be in precalc. I have room for one elective next year. The options are Forensics, Anatomy and Physiology, Biochem/Molecular Biolgy, and Bio-Medical Design and Developement. My senior year should leave me room for 4 electives if I did my math right. I can then take the classes listed above, as well as 3 others. They are AP Chem, AP Bio, and AP Physics. Which ones would help me achieve, or at least give me an idea if the concepts towards these careers? Also, which colleges (preferably in New York) offer programs for these careers? I don't plan on having an easy senior year, so please don't suggest that, unless you actually can back it up. Thank you!

Biomedical Engineering is not a good undergraduate Engineering discipline. If you want Biomedical Engineering, study it at the Master's level. "Genetic Engineering" isn't a standard Engineering discipline. What you mean is probably Biological Engineering.
