So, I am a 30 year old male, and I really would like to start the long road of becoming a Doctor.
I have had this interest since I was 15 but I should have applied myself when I was finishing high school and started school right away. I had potential to be 4.0 student, I was in early years, but last two years I was immature, caring only for my social life, not applying myself and got mediocre grades to finish. I convinced myself I wanted independence and college was a waste of my time. So I continued my not so glamorous life of Restaurant Management until now. But I’ve often regretted my choice.
I had dismissed it as it was too late for me to start this journey. A few friends I’ve told tell me I’m crazy, which is why I’m deciding for now I’ll keep it to myself until I’m further along I don’t Care about people’s negative opinions.
I don’t even know where to begin at this point. For my
Undergraduate, I live near Seattle I could try for UW or I could move back to my home town to where family
Is to try to get in to WWU. But I haven’t been to school since HS. I’ve never even taken the SAT. I’m guessing that I need to start with a community college to get some of the refresh to my education? I’m still learning about financial aid and all of that as well. I really want this more than anything, I just feel uncertainty about my starting point, if I should work part time or devote myself to it completely…
I currently am single with no kids so atleast I don’t have to factor that it to my decision.
I just am pleased to finally be talking about this.
Thank you for reading,
