Hi there, looking for a bit of advice.
All my life (I’m talking 5 years old onward), I wanted to be a doctor. I got into an Ivy League school after having done research in high school and was ready to tackle all my pre-med classes. When I got to college, I did not work as hard as I could have (a range of B+ to C in science classes). When I attempted to take Organic Chemistry, I got a pretty devastating concussion, couldn’t read for two months, and ended up withdrawing. Round two of orgo I found myself having to deal with some pretty catastrophic events (death threats, mental health crisis, etc.) and failed it the second time around.
After that point, I decided to switch gears and focus on my minor and leave pre-med entirely. I switched majors and stopped taking science classes sophomore year. After college, I started a PhD in my other field and am now 1.5 years in. I’ve recently realized that I want to go back to medicine. Do my dodgy grades and move away and then back to medicine seem wishy-washy? I currently have plans to do a DIY post-bacc and retake classes from 4+ years ago and finish the other pre-recs.
