How do you earn money while being in med school?

I am a senior in hs, and will be pursuing a biology bs/ pre med degree in college and after that want to get into a good med school, but since med school is quite expensive and I will certainly have to take student loans, how do i earn any good money in med school? For most other majors, you can do jobs after your undergraduate degree and get a better job if you get a master’s degree, which is usually completed in a maximum 6 years, but for med school i will be unemployed for a whopping 8 years! How do i earn money in that time to take care of my finances??

Which major is more beneficial if I want to be a neurologist, biology or health sciences?

I'm currently a senior in high school and I plan on doing community college with a 4 year college partnership after high school and the college I am interested in doing the partnership with offers either biology or health sciences for a bachelor in pre-med. After doing my 2 years at the community college (with the partnership) I plan on transferring to a 4 year college and getting a doctorate. So I just was wondering which area would be more beneficial if I want to go into the neuroscience field.

What are some solid extracurriculars for medical?

I am currently a sophomore in highschool and I am wondering what are some solid extracurriculars that revolve around medical? I am currently in the IB programme and trying to maintain high grades, but I don’t think my grades solely will be able to get me into a good university. Another question is would it be better to focus on my grades and try to get them to near perfect with simple extracurriculars? Or should I maintain the grades I have now and add unique extracurriculars?

I am starting to plan for college and I don’t really know where to start.
