Jim’s Answer

Do what you have to do to follow your dream. Just don't get stuck in accounting unless you love it.

My daughter's dream is to be a college professor and teach music. She has her bachelor's degree in music, but needs to go to grad school and can't afford it. So, she's going to get her associate's degree in information technology to make money to pay for her grad school. Sound familiar. I have all the faith in the world that she can make this happen, which means I also have all the faith that you can do it too.

Simeon’s Answer

Accountancy and medicine are both wonderful fields to get into, but you might want to settle on which of the two will be your main path as qualifying for either field requires years of work and you'll want to start one of those careers as soon as you're able to. It's not a bad idea to have a back up career, though, so if you want to, you could try starting one of the careers and then taking classes on the side to work on qualifying for the other field. Even then, though, you're likely to be stretched thin, so make sure you plan carefully.

Donna’s Answer

Wilmar;

It is ashamed that many individuals give up their dreams due to finances. But you are 14, and there is no reason for you to give up on a career in medicine due to finances. You have so many innovative ways that you could do this. Get with your guidance counselors now. Look at various opportunities for scholarships. A few thousand dollars from various locations adds up.

I just googled "funding a medical education" and got the link below. RESEARCH, PLAN, and PLAN CONTIGENCY. As it gets closer to high school graduation what is meant to be will fall into place. Be flexible and think outside the box.

Does your community have volunteer Fire Department? Get your EMT and volunteer it will look great on your applications. And you get experience in the medical field. If push come to shove and finances are not working out, then upon graduation you could consider going into career Fire Fighting -- but look to see if they have a college program which you can pursue your medical dreams.

Consider the military option, going in as a nurse or medic. After your 1st year in you can activate your educational benefits. Or getting a scholarship to one of the military's academies for doctor.

My son planned all his life to go into the military as a field medic with the Marines (Navy). Unfortunately a minor soccer injury and the need for electronics technicians at the time disqualified him from that dream. Plan B was Paramedic. He spent two years after graduation volunteering for the local fire department and putting in applications to every county in the region. He is now an active Fire Fighter/ EMT and the county will pay for his Paramedic Degree once he get promoted to a certain rank. Lesson: Your dreams may morph but always have faith, focus, and patience.

ASLON’s Answer

Hi. If your heart is set on entering the medical field, you will want to do more research. Find out how other people in that field did it. What did they do to prepare? Did they need to get financial aid and if so, how did they do it. You will want to *find out how to get loans and scholarships. Plan for that now so you can work on your grades and whatever else is needed. I know many Doctors who didn't have the money to go to medical school. Most of them got student loans and financial aid. You may be in the same situation so don't give up on it. Figure out what is needed, learn from others who have already done it and make a plan for yourself. Good Luck
