Student Too Deep Into Pre-Med Track Now To Not Call It His Passion
EVANSTON, IL – Sources reported Monday that Northwestern rising senior Eric Pollard, a Weinberg pre-med student majoring in biology, was currently too far into his sequence of classes to not call the study of medicine his passion. “Yeah, I mean I like premed fine,” said Pollard when reached for comment. “I’ve done this whole track for 3 years now, so at this point I guess I should probably start telling people it’s my calling in life.”
Pollard, who entered freshman year thinking he probably wanted to do something “kinda science-y,” is presently spending his summer shadowing an attending physician at a local hospital, a position that he should begin to call his dream job now that he’s going into his last year of college. “I think most of the classes I’ve taken for premed have been pretty interesting,” Pollard said. “And I’m about to be a senior, so I might as well start sounding more certain when I people ask me if I’m passionate about medicine or excited to become a doctor.”
“I mean, it’s not like I’m going to go explore some other interest this late in the game,” the 21-year-old added.
