I am 37 years old and about to head back to college. My ultimate goal is to get into Med School and I am trying to decide on the best course of study.
A little background on myself. I was in the Navy for 6 years where I went through the nuclear power program and ultimately specialized as an engineering laboratory technician. I have taken courses in water chemistry, radiological studies, heat transfer and fluid flow, and many more through the navy. I also have a background in the food service industry having managed full service restaurants for many years. Currently I am in the sales industry working for Navistar Inc. ( I sale 18 wheelers)
My question is what is the best course of study, if there is such a thing, to help me prepare for medical school.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
