Help with questions on becoming a surgeon?

  1. Apr 20, 2015 #1
    Im almost 16 and in 10th grade and im very interested in biology/human anatomy. But when i was in 9th grade i was homeschooled and it wasnt for me and i ended up procrastinating to the point were i was kicked out in the middle of the second semester (but you need to finish the whole semester to get you credits) so i ended up get super behind with only around 17 credits for my whole freshman year and i was curious if that ruines my chances with maybe going to med school and becoming a doctor? Im planning on doing summer school my last two summers i have left but im in biology and algebra 1 right now, so i wanted to know if that interferes with me getting to my career choice. Ive filled out about 3 applications to volunteer at hospitals around me and plan on getting my CNA (certified nurse assistant) after i turn 16. Please give any tips or advice you have. Thank you.

    How does one get kicked out of being homeschooled?

    I think you need to focus on high school, and in particular your writing. Med school is 7 or more years away, and it will still be there in 7 years. Right now you need to be worrying about the problem in front of you - excelling in high school.
