Need some guidance as I'm the first of my ancestors to go to college :) Well my parents came into the USA in hope of a better future and for a better education, but they could not afford it. Both of my parents are high school dropouts from a 3rd world country, so asking them for guidance is out of the question. I'm having trouble deciding on what career path to take (business or medical). I've done day trading and forex trading and I loved it but I also love the study of the human body and the thought one day being a surgeon never ceases to amaze me :). Now I've looked at the requirements for these jobs and medical requires A LOT of money and time and I've got 4 other siblings who will be going to college with funds paid by my dad who makes around 30-40k a year. Now logically speaking what is the more suitable career choice for me? Also, I'm only 16 so I still have some time to make my decisions. I wanted to know how would I go about getting some information on what the REAL day to day activities of these jobs are? Lastly, I have other hobbies such as music ( I study classical guitar and metal ) so if I pursue a medical career will I ever have the opportunity to have FREE TIME?
