my experience: graduated as an engineer and worked at a factory. hated it initially and wanted to go into psychiatry as well (the philosophical aspects of it are extremely fascinating: we are proscribing pills that arguably changes someone's *self*, how do the pills work, what does it mean to be mentally ill, is it all biological driven, etc etc). So I did the following

a) read a bunch of books on psychiatry and philosophy of psychiatry
b) e-mailed some of the authors
c) volunteered at a psych / mental health ward for a couple months

What I learned: (1) Psychiatry is currently bunk. We DON'T CASUALLY UNDERSTAND how the drugs work, instead we infer via statistics that the drugs do XYZ on people with ABC illness. It's black magic, and when I pushed some of these psychiatrists, they agreed with me (2) Psychiatrists pretty much just do med management. Hospital "techs" and social workers are the ones that talk with the patient, see how they're doing, write reports on the patient for the psychiatrist to go over, etc etc. It's all very clinical and technical and bureaucratic. Any idealism you have about the field will be crushed to a pulp. Imagine living in a Kafka novel.

From a professional psychiatrist I spoke with on whether I should join the field

>I hope you make your decision soundly. From a philosophical perspective, in my view, psychiatry’s philosophy is not what you think; it’s a good deal worse. But that doesn’t mean it will always be this way. The question is whether it’s worth your while, and just as importantly, whether you can make it any better.

good luck anon. you'd be taking a MAJOR STEP. prereqs, med school. The time and money spent is insane. I'm sure you could do it, but just think on it.

Honestly, not a bad idea. If you're in any way competent at solving leetcode challenges then you'll be able to get a job somewhere. You're not going to get paid tonnes and it's not going to be some fortune 500 company but you'll easily get a job.

Hey it’s you again, the American pajeet yea? What would you have done differently if you could start your degree from the beginning again? I’m a freshman in maths and my professor is offering me two projects to work on, basically he likes me, and I want to make more publications early on instead of being utterly devastated when I apply for grad school. It’s much easier to get into grad school in Eastern Europe but I have my sights on Asia since I’m a SEAmonkey. I hope you get accepted to grad school next round of admissions.

math is actually a pretty broad field, most mathematicians just try to work on unsolved abstract problems. For example, a paper I recently wrote was concerned with finding the topological properties of subsum sets. There are a lot of problems (twin prime conjecture, Riemann Hypothesis) that we have no idea on how to prove rigorously, but geniuses like Terrence Tao are working on it.

Yes, but HR whores need to see that on your resume regardless. I prefer pandas too.
Objectively false. There is a lot of demand still, and my particular niche has a ridiculous need for people.

R should be fairly easy to start with. Start with basic data manipulation then try to move into statistical tests ( after you understand the theory), then regression and more funky shit. THEN you ditch R almost entirely and do classification tasks with python and keras instead.

yes it's me. If you are going to grad school, I would publish as many things as you can and have a really strong relationship with professors. Utilize your time wisely, ie do summer programs as well. Apply to as many programs as you can, while keeping your GPA up. I don't know too much about Eastern Europe, but I'm convinced you need to be as close to perfection as possible. Take graduate classes, putnams, etc and do as well as you can in them. also im not the best person to ask since I thought I was a strong student but after getting destroyed I guess not

My gf (well now we are engaged) did med school over season, is in her first year or residency.

The pay is about 55k a year on average. It's ALOT of work to get a good MCAT score, finish med school, get amazing scores on board exams etc. Not to mention the debt.

The scariest part is getting into residency. There are limited spots and every year you don't match it gets statistically harder. Look up the match/soap threads in reddit the past few years on the med school sub, it's depressing.

Don't do it for the money, because even with 215k starting salary of a physician who finished residency, if your med school debt is 200k, it could take 10 years to pay back. You won't want to live frugally until you start residency, so (living at home and paying off loans in 2 years) might not be feasible.

Thanks mate. I’ll listen to your advice. Keeping GPA up is tough, I agree. Based on whatever data I could get my hand on every year there are only 3 students in a batch with perfect scores for a whole academic year. I got that going for me now, but it’s a precarious position. Yea I also have the delusion of being a good student, but really I’m just old and I spent free time studying.

Word, thank you for the insights. I’m not necessarily doing it for the money, I find analytical psychology and psychiatry and the mind in general to be the most fascinating aspect of life. So to get into a career path associated with such would be awesome. But good money is nice.

I’m most worried about studying for and scoring well on the MCAT. I was historically a lazy student but also I’ve matured a lot since my undergrad. Residency doesn’t frighten me as much to be honest since I fortunately have the advantage of nepotism through friends and family which I would for sure leverage.

I’d also be fortunate enough to live at home and commute to NYC if I got accepted into a med school there.

But still, the debt, the time, and the coursework are daunting. I’ll take some time to think about it, no reason to rush into anything. I might start by volunteering/shadowing a friend at the hospital to see if it’s a lifestyle I’d actually enjoy and I’m not just romanticizing it.

And grats fren on your engagement and to your fiancee for scoring a residency
