I am a 23 year old who just graduated from a complete no name state school with a ~2.97 GPA with a B.S. in Biology. It took me 5.5 years to graduate due to several personal issues I had mostly to do with my maturity. Also, during this time I got a DUI so there's that. Eventually, I figured it out and climbed my GPA from a 2 to 3 and received an extremely high (99%ile) MCAT score. Ultimately, I was admitted to a medical school which was my goal all along due to the upward GPA trend and extremely high MCAT score. I have always been a smart dude I guess (36 ACT) in high school but have in the past been plagued by my behaviors. That's been corrected though and being accepted to med school was kind've the reward for it. But now...
I am heavily re-evaluating my physician aspirations and am wondering if I have any shot whatsoever to break into finance? The only finance I would be interested in would be big market banking, consulting, etc. preferably in NYC. I say this because being a physician is a very safe way to make 500k-1M per year and if that's what I'm giving up, I want big returns.
I find myself more interested in capital markets and frankly making money than I am in treating patients. I unfortunately see myself enjoying my day to day as a banker or consultant more than a physician.
sidebar: If we could refrain from telling me I would be a bad doctor, that'd be great too, because trust me, most doctors are in it for the money these days.
