    I don't feel like I need to sit in a classroom, pay a ton of money for tuition and books to learn about things like society or psychology since it's easy enough to figure out on your own. All you really need are good observational skills. I do find it interesting, but completely uncomplicated.
    I don't totally agree with that. Medicine is definitely a tougher field when it comes down to the studying aspect, but I wouldn't go as far to say that fields related to psychology and social science aren't worth spending time/money on -- or any field for that matter. I honestly think it depends on each person. I've had the pleasure of learning under some amazing social science and English teachers in high school who I respect far more than a lot of doctors who go into medicine for all the wrong reasons. People who take a passionate interest in their professions and study whole-heartedly will, no doubt, master them in ways you can't measure on a scale with money or time -- no matter what field they pursue.

    [FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']TAH-tTAH-t[/FONT]Software Engineer or Biotechnologist. Every piece of hardware needs software to operate. In todays world, tell u the truth, there is more emphasis on research. Cell culture, Stem Cell, Protein engineering, Gene therapy, Cloning, synthetic skin, engineered foods, and alot more. The biotech field has unlimited applications . In this field you can grow organs or body parts just from a couple of cells. I think Biomed has more to do with the medical equipment such as x-ray machines, EEG,ECG, and with artificial lymbs or organs. Such as the TAH-T artifiacial heart. Also neural interfaces(BrainGate), this is what interests me. Nowadays engineering and the life sciences are combining. Plus medical colleges prefer students who hav done some kind of research work.

    I plan on doing biotech in college and then going on to medschool somewhere on this planet. Most likely i will be financeing my own medical education or maybe i will get some merit scholarship or government grant. Inshallah we will all achieve our goals. I dont think you should give up so easily. Research in genetics, software engineering ( AI, and other smart progammings), neural engineering has shown significant improvements ( BrainGate is one of the companies developing ways to merge mind with matter).
