My possible backup plan...
I'm just curious if anyone on here knows a Pathologist or an Anatomic Pathologist's Assistant. My dad's work had a get together yesterday and one of the nurses that work for him brought her husband. Her husband is the head of the Mortuary department and ahead of the anatomic Pathology department at Wayne State University. My dad was talking to him and said how I was getting my Bachelors in Biology, and he told my dad to contact him if I am interested in being an Anatomic Pathologist's Assistant when I graduate. He said that if he hired me at the school I would start at $85,000. I told my dad that there is a 2 year program after before becoming certified, but he told me the guy didn't say that. I did a lot of research on career and it seems very interesting. I'm just looking at other avenues than Dentistry because I am by no means a shoe in to Dental School and it is becoming increasingly competitive to get in. Last year more than 6500 students applied to my school's Dental school and I believe 78 were accepted.
