Thanks for your reply. (I feel honoured to have been in your 1000th message lol) Sorry I'm not too sure what you mean by "ask that of yourself"? If you mean the answer to why wouldn't I do medical science/biomed instead, it's because I guess I would feel that a) it would be a waste of a high atar (which I know sounds stupid), and b) because it really doesn't differentiate myself from all the other "med wannabes" like Mana said lol. I guess I would feel like "why did I put so much effort in getting this 99.whatever atar if I'm just going to do biomed anyway..." I think it would be crazy for someone with 99.95 to do biomed and not even try to get into BMS/MD undergraduate at UNSW or double degree at USYD for example. Even if a biomedical bachelor then PhD degree is more suited towards a career in academia/research than MD, I feel like it really wouldn't differentiate myself. Then again I'm only in high school and have a lot to learn and don't know much about university and medicine in general, please enlighten me.
