Anum’s Answer

It is all about interest or preferences. If you are interested in it with a passion then you will work hard towards it and any and all hurdles that come in your way will never stop you from pursuing it and becoming successful in it. That goes for any field even a low prioritized field like psychiatry. People who even like it and would want to pursue it are shot down because of the low scope financially and the low demand in general but the truth is, if that is what you really like and you know that this is the future you want to put in your blood and sweat for, you will make ways to succeed and build a future for yourself in it. I would advise to not look for all the reasons you could be wrong to follow what you have found your passion for.
I am not sure if you were asking the pros or cons as a general question or because you were not sure as to pursue it, or if you just think it is a good option out of many, I answered it in one context. I really hope it helps!

Neurology is a very challenging field that is evolving fast. It can be an emotionally trying field of practice because many of the patients have progressively deteriorating diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease, but new medications and therapies are slowing the progression of these diseases. Neurology is fascinating, and neurologists are in very high demand.

Neurology is a good field.
However, keep an open mind, especially early on in your career, and don't be afraid to make changes.
While you may currently find neurology an interesting field, as you enter your studies, you will be exposed to lots of other disciplines which might better suit your interests, dreams or personality. The beauty of medical school is that it allows you exposure and opportunities for rotations through different medical specialties.
