I’m a Master’s student in math at a Canadian university. I am in a dilemma where I cannot decide which career path to choose. I have a very deep interest in math and computer science, but I am not sure if I want to dedicate my life to a research based job in that field. I have participated in research programs during my undergrad, and I found it very enjoyable. However, there are a couple of things putting me off from it. One of them is being able to make a meaningful contribution. The main reason I initially became interested in this career path was the possibility of contributing to the advancement of science (as naive as that sounds). But I soon discovered that there are very smart people working in academia, and any contributions that I am able to make will no doubt be minor. In terms of other options, one of them is medical school. I have already taken the MCAT and completed the prerequisite courses, so this could be another great option for me. If anyone has any advice, it would be appreciated.
