I think I’d become a psychiatrist rather than a nurse practitioner. Same basic job, but pdoc makes a lot more…
But I just can’t make it into med school. I’m not even sure if my science gpa is a 3.0, it’s likely lower. I’m terrible at chemistry and organic chemistry, which make up a good chunk of the MCAT, so even if I studied like crazy for it I’d likely only get an average score, which would not make up for my gpa.
And then even if somehow above all odds if I got into a med school, I am not sure I could make it through. Undergrad alone has been very difficult for me with my mental/emotional state. So am I a bit disappointed I don’t think I’ll ever be a psychiatrist who does research? Yeah. But a nurse practitioner who does research is ok too.
I know some people on here are already doctors/studying to become one and I think that’s really cool and inspiring.
