Interesting to see other people's interests. I always wanted to go volunteer for sea turtle conservation in the South but money wise that might not be feasible for a long time.
I am currrently digging my self a cozy debt hole to become a history teacher. lol I don't know.
In the future I would love to save some money and either work or volunteer for animal conservation/rehabilitation.

I'm currently going to school for Bio/Pre-Vet, but am planning on switching to either double-majoring in Biology and Conservation/Ecology or majoring in Conservation/Ecology with a Biology minor. After I graduate, I'd love to do fieldwork studying wolves and/or other apex predators.

When I was little I always wanted to be a vet. But when I reached high school and had to decide where I was going for college I wasn't too keen on the many years it would take me to get to being a vet. So I decided to go into culinary arts. I got my job at Chipotle towards the end of my first year in school. Well, 3 1/2 years and one Associate's Degree later, and I am a Service Manager at one of the busiest Chipotles in MN! I love it there, and I have the opportunity to become an Apprentice at my store, all I have to do is say the word and I can be assessed. My only issue is that as an apprentice I'll have to work 50 hours a week which means I'll have less time to spend at home with my amazing son. But once I become an apprentice the next step is running my own Chipotle.

My plan is to be a doctor.
For undergrad I want to major in English, and double minor in Music Performance (Piano) or Music Composition and in French Language.
Then get my MD degree. :)

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I'm a bit confused here - my understanding is that for undergrad, you go to college for pre-med with either a biology or chemistry emphasis, take the MCAT, and apply to medical school from there (atleast in the States). Is this a difference between the US and Canada? I'm genuinely curious - sorry if it sounds off.

It's funnier in Enochian.

That's what I thought too. All my future doctor friends applied to biomedical science. I did biology.

I havent done too much research. xD From my knowledge, you can take any undergrad you want - but you still have to take your pre-med courses, followed by MCAT, but it just means you cant take them within your degree. - I think!
