Medical School? Veterinary School?
Just wondering if anyone on here has gone to med school or vet school..... or is currently enduring the madness of either one. Any and all experiences are very much appreciated!!
My story- I began college wanting to go to medical school; loved everything about it and couldn't imagine myself doing anything else. I am very goal oriented and focused and have always had friends tell me that they think I would be a perfect doctor. Then, I changed my mind half way through and decided I wanted to go to veterinary school. This was mostly because I wanted to be working with animals every day. Also, vet school doesn't require a residency, and I liked the idea of finishing everything up sooner and settling down to start a family (I do not currently have a BF). I still love medicine just as much as ever, whether it be for humans or animals.
Now the twist- I was recently offered an interview to veterinary school (I did not apply to med school for this round because it was not even a thought six months ago). Now, I do not want anything to do with vet school. I am back to the stage where I feel like I should really be a doctor and can't imagine myself doing anything else.I want to decline the interview, and apply to med schools during the next application round (this will leave me out of school for a bit after I finish my undergrad). My parents think I am nuts. They see how hard I have worked, and think I am throwing away a great opportunity. I know this seems totally wishy-washy. I am a young adult, and they are expecting me to make a decision that will effect the next 5-10 years of my life. I am clueless about what to do!
Any grad school/med or vet school experiences would be great to hear! Why did you choose that route? Would you do it all over again? Anything you would change?
