Athletics vs good college
I’m a rising senior & I want to be a pediatrician but I’m not sure what type of undergrad college I should attend. I have decent grades (Top 10% out of 800+) to easily get me into a good state college like A&M ...but I would love to play basketball in college which I’d probably have to go to a D2 or D3 school to do. I love basketball but I don’t want to go to a worse college and end up not getting into med school. What should I do/consider?4 replies
