this is vatoloco ok here goes my advice if you want to be a doctor you have to have good grades in high school if you don't get good grades how are you going to get a schalorship you really have to study hard to be a doctor theres a lot of discipline to do and you have to start now today not tomorrow I mean now if you really want to be a doctor your going to have to go 24 seven let me tell you why one of my best friends is a lawyer he went to law school and studied his ass off for 12 years he had no girlfriends he didn't party his purpose in life was being a lawyer its a lot of sacrifice he tells me. I ask him if he regreted it at first he did because he lost out on a lot of things but now that his gotting older his 60 now he tells me that's the best thing he has done in his life and that the sacrifice was worth it I ask him would you do it all over again he tells me without no doubt sow cristal rivera you know what you have to do to accomplish your dreams its not going to be easy but whats easy in life good luck your friend vatoloco.

If you don't finish high school or get a GED, you might as well forget about medical school. It takes a minimum if 7 years of additional schooling to become a doctor and if you can't hack high school, forget college, med school then intern and residency.
If you are really serious, talk to your hs counselor now to get extra credits and community activities that will get you on the right path. It may take some real hard work to undo the damage you've done, but if you're determined it can be done.

Agreed. Until you said you'd made mistakes in the past, I was prepared to say not my doctor! No interest in school=no interest in medical field. Too much to learn and know

If you graduate, you made good enough grades. You have to complete high school. The grades that really matter, however, are college grades. I made mistakes during high school as well. I ended up going back and getting a diploma through home studies. I made as many credits as I could (you can work faster this way) and graduated. I never really got good grades in high school because I never took it seriously. But now in college I am at a 3.95 grade point average. You can become a doctor, but if you feel you can't complete high school, you will have to change that because becoming a doctor includes extensive studies. Not just getting a BA but a doctorites. You are young enough right now to turn everything over and do exactly what you want! Don't waste any time! I hope you go for it hard!! :)
