How did you choose your area of study?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to become a medical doctor.  However, I’ve recently developed a strong interest in psychology and neuroscience as well.  At Lake Forest College, I’m completing coursework in pre-health, psychology, and neuroscience that will prepare me for my ultimate goal of becoming a neurosurgeon.
