My name is Jacob. I am currently a sophomore in high school in America, so I will start applying to colleges in about a year (scary!). Anyways, I was wondering about what I should study in college and grad school. Right now, I am planning on taking lots of biology and chem courses as an undergrad and then going to med school. However, math is truly my strong subject. Here are a few of my questions, please try to answer a few:

1. What degrees would I need to get, or what would I have to study in order to pursue medicine?

2. Do you think it would be manageable to get those degrees and also get a degree in math?

3. What kind of jobs can you do with a doctorate in math (besides teaching math and doing statistics projects)?

4. Is it manageable to get two different doctorates?

5. If I did get a doctorate in medicine as well as a doctorate in math, would I be able to teach math once I was older (around 60), just because I love it (obviously a teaching position would pay much less than a surgeon's salary)?

These are all my questions for now, if I think of any more I'll edit this post.
