Hi Christopher, though your route is not the most direct route of becoming a pediatrician, you can certainly do it that way. Going to community college will certainly save you a lot of money, but something to keep in mind is that medical schools look down on it if you take the important medical school prerequisite courses there. They want you to take the “big” biology’s, physics, and chemistry at a university rather than a community college. This won’t necessarily prevent you from being accepted but will definitely be a barrier, so just be aware of that when planning your class schedules. You can then go on to get a bachelors in nutrition, become a dietician, and work as a dietician for a few years while finishing up medical school prerequisites and the MCAT. This is very possible. It will take longer than the traditional route, but if it is what you are interested in then it may certainly be the best path for you. It will also make you a unique applicant for medical school having experience as a dietician.

Best of luck!

Hi Christopher,


First, we need to focus in order to make a good decision on what course or career choice. In your case, I realize that you are hesitating between two courses. In this case, you can write on a sheet of paper, the points that attract you in each course. The course which has more positive factors can be chosen by you:




  1. Consider your passions, interests, and values.




  2. Think of your favorite subjects and classes in high school.




  3. Consider job prospects.




  4. Read the course catalog at your college or university. If you have already been accepted to a school, then read the course catalog to learn about the different majors, their requirements, and the types of courses involved. Remember that sometimes the titles of classes are misleading, so be sure to read some of the course descriptions for more details.




  5. Consider your school's reputation. Does your school specialize in Journalism? Agriculture? Medicine? Engineering? If the quality of the education you receive is of utmost importance to you and you are still undecided between majors, then consider which departments or majors your school is most well-known for.
