Came to wall street oasis to look for some advice on possibly entering the field of business from a biological sciences degree.
Currently a junior in college at a state school starting to have second thoughts on the biology - med school track and looking into business. I've been able to maintain a 3.7 gpa so far, although not at a top tier university. The reason I'm thinking about the switch is because a lot of the upper level science classes do not interest me AT ALL, just doing it do get buy at this point. Med school has always been my goal but i guess that was cause I couldn't see myself doing anything else. Now I'm having second thoughts because of my lack in interest and commitment in studying I suppose plus with the massive debt and intense studies in med school is it even worth it anymore? This sparked my debate on if med school is the way to go, problem is at a mid tier state school far into my biological studies degree, with no business experience, is there any way to break into the field? Is a biology degree pointless without a higher degree? I know a lot of top firms recruit at top schools and even then the competition is intense. So I'm wondering if there's any to break into the field, (I have no relevant business experience and am on course to get a biology degree). Would ditching the biology degree for an econ degree, or econ minor with the bio degree be necessary? I am almost in Desperate at this point for any advice and if you could help out that would be greatly appreciated!
