>want to move forward in life, but can't decide whether to try going to med school (DO) or go back to school and prsue a degree in Engineering

What do I do? Is either field worth it at this point of my life? I love science. I love math. I love technology. I just don't know how to turn it into something I can live on, start a family, etc.

engineering is a dead end.
go to med school, lots of people do it when they're older, and there's more room for growth as a doctor.

R&D requires decades of experience to get into. You can't just expect to jump into engineering and do cutting edge research, he'll be a spreadsheet monkey at best. Also pays a lot less.
>>

get a degree as a medical lab tech. if you have a degree in bio, then you will likely only need to attend for ~2 years. after that you can pull 60k starting in a good location, 40k starting in a shit location.

you can work on a masters/phd in the sciences after that if you still want to pursue science.
>>
>>1005915
Sounds good, but are there any opportunities for growth in that field?
>>
>>1005932
I actually don't know.
>>
>>1005932
can be a head/senior scientist at hospital
dont go for tech go for full CLS

Engineering is such a broad field, isn't it? It can't be that much of a dead end. What makes you think so?
>>
>>1005908
If you have a bachelor's in engineering then you will always be a spreadsheet monkey
>>
Can someone tell me is America so bad that people actually have trouble finding jobs with engineering degrees?

Bumping for interest

>>1006016
I am working part time minimum wage with a bachelor's dual majoring in math and economics. Such is life in rural murrika.

But muh freedom and all that shit.

>"large savings"
>still has student loans at 30

Pay off your debts. If you can't, you have no savings. Your net worth is in the negative.
>>
>>1006151
I got my B.S. at 27. I'm already making good payments, and getting rid of debt at a comfortable rate. Why not save a bit on the side?
>>
>>1006146
Move sucker
>>
>>1006151
What's your interest rate vs. Rate of return?

Definitely save and have cash on hand but don't be skerred to bump that loan payment. My net worth was around 60k when I started going after my loan.

In the end doesn't matter much...

>getting rid of debt at a comfortable rate

Don't get suckered into this comfy shit you cuck. You'll probably end up paying more in the long run unless you just immediately clear it asap. You have no idea what your circumstances will be next week, pay it off while you still have more than enough money to.

>having debt that isn't leverage and is more than 3%
>saving
