Frequent poster, but I went anonymous for this even though it’s just a career question. I know, right?
I will be 27 in a couple weeks. I have a degree in something I just don’t want to be in anymore. I don’t feel it’s very rewarding, and I simply just don’t care about it.
I was considering medical school for psychiatry.
I’ve never been good at math, and I would need to take the GRE. There is a local post-bac program that would prepare me for the MCAT and medical school (apparently over 99% of the students who complete the post-bac program get into med school).
So it’d take several months or so to prepare for the GRE. The post-bac program starts every every June (admission is by March… only once a year).
I’ll be getting married in early fall of this year.
At 27, I just don’t know about starting over. And I’m not sure if I’m even capable of all the physics/chemistry/math that would be involved… but maybe I can. It would take money and time to find out. Otherwise… I’m not sure.
I just don’t really have a “passion” for anything… nothing draws me in/ If I could, I’d travel the world and take photos. It’s not very conducive to marriage though (he has a real job here, and needs to stay here), and impossible to really do anyway.
Medicine and psychology has really been the closest thing, I suppose. I just wish I were younger.
So what does anyone think?Is anyone in a PhD psych program, or in psychiatry, or med school? Pre-med? Anything?
Any words of advice from anyone who is super-late 20s or in their 30s or older?
Anything would be appreciated. Thank you!
