No Experience Necessary
Question by erlax5693: Which one of these careers are the best to go into? Medical or Real Estate PLEASE GIVE ANY ADVICE!?
I’m going to be a senior in high school in a Minneapolis, Mn Suburb. My prospect schools are: University of North Dakota, North Dakota State (NDSU), University of Minnesota, Duluth (UMD), and University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. I will be starting my four years off in the Fall of 2011. I’m trying to decide between 2(Possibly 3) Careers. First is a General Practitioner/Family Practice which I know also requires 4 years of medical school and 3 years of residency. That’s a lot of school (but does the pay out-weigh the long term school commitment?) Another career is Real Estate/Investments. I know right now is not the perfect time for this type of job but I would love to buy houses and renovate them and make a profit (Real Estate Investor). If anyone could also give any more career choices similar to these. I would like some pro’s and con’s on both of them and keep in mind I don’t plan on staying in minnesota. I plan to live in California( L.A. or Sacramento) or Utah(Provo). Thank you so much and all or any information is appreciated!
The 2 most important things to me in a career are Flexibility and Salary, I would like to make $ 125,000+

Consider what you want out of life. Do you see yourself getting married early or later? Do you see yourself being able to stick out 11-12 years of school beyond high school or would a shorter term suit you better? Do you see yourself working in an office, making phone calls, going on appointments or do you see yourself in a hospital getting your hands dirty? Do you want a Monday to Friday 9-5 schedule or are you ok with working nights and weekends and holidays?
