That's a difficult question, first I think you need to ask yourself what is drawing you to medicine and what drives you. I hate to say it but medical school is incredibly difficult and getting more and more expensive as well. Throughout my years I have found myself questioning whether pursuing an MD was the right choice for me after studying for 14 hours a day for weeks straight and then only averaging on an exam only to do it all over again, but then I work with another patient who inspires me and reminds me what I am working toward. Medical school is another 4 years after college and depending on what you go into it may be an additional 3-10 years. Another option would be a physician assistant where it would be 23 months after college with no residency training needed. You just need to ask yourself where you see yourself in 10 years and what is driving that passion.
