Default My Mom Suggested I go to Europe

Today I was asked, "So have you decided on your degree."

I told I was not still sure, but I was leaning toward a computer engineering major and an electrical engineering minor. Simple enough, however she then said, "Are you still interested in becoming a Doctor? If so, you can just go to school in Europe and be over with it there."

Of course this caught me off guard so I was left to ponder to myself as I told her I still have a month to decide as the school year wasn't over.

Regardless, I was a bit stunned.

What if I did move over to Europe and simply got my degree over there. I find myself wonder how it will be like over there. It seems almost glamorous to me, as, I've always wanted to visit the region myself and if I went, I would likely going to Liverpool where my mother used to live. That's fine and dandy but, how badly would I miss America?

I'm not sure what I'm asking, but I'm sorta just left to ponder to myself at the moment and ask, "What do I want?"

Well, the simpler and more important question is: Do you actually want to be a doctor? Because if not then you probably shouldn't. I personally wouldn't trust a doc that didn't even want that job to begin with, since people that are forced into jobs they aren't compatible with usually end up pretty bitter.

Europe is nice. But it's a big decision. Make certain it's what you want first.
No, you won't really miss America. Just a little bit. You'll find ways to cope.
My parents send me a package every year on Christmas with goodies from the US.
Traveling to the US to visit family is very, very expensive. Establish some means of communication.

Normally, I look at the world university rankings when deciding where to study. ^^;

I studied abroad, too. It's tough being on your own as it is, and even tougher when you're so far away. It's a great experience, though. Full of life lessons.

go over if you feel you need to, though if you can, you could even try for double degrees.

I don't think double majoring if you plan on being a doctor/going to med school isn't the sanest idea, just saying.



It's a big decision, and most people change their majors or have doubts at least once. If you're unsure, perhaps contact those in Europe about the possibility of transferring there after a year in the US, if you decide to go to med school there.
