Want free career or academic advice
from a professional?

I've always been passionate about Medicine, particularly in becoming a Physician. Is 30 years old, too old to be a first time college student and pursue this career?

I've worked Retail for over 12 years, mostly commission-based. I've also managed several locations simultaneously. I didn't attend school due to unexpected life events, but I am eager to start now. I'm unsure if I should pursue a career in Business because it's more aligned with the work I've been involved with and takes less time, or if I should go after my dreams and become a Doctor. Any and all feedback will be greatly appreciated.

No, there have been plenty of folks who started late and became passionate and successful physicians. Test the waters first as a college freshman, take general science courses and general business courses -- even take other unrelated courses if you can. Once you see what you like, go for it.
