Law School, Med School, other PhDs too?

_ asked:

I’m going to college in the fall as a freshman. I’ve been thinking about doing a double major in English and philosophy. I love both of these areas of study. With this double major, I would either attend law school or eventually become a professor for philosophy or English (both sort of overlap, so I’m not sure which one I’d go for). Nevertheless, I’m also very interested in psychology (overlaps with philosophy and thus with English since English overlaps with philosophy). Yet I’m also interested in psychiatry. I hear and read about the negative effects of medication and practice of psychiatry, but I’m curious. Some people do benefit from psychiatry, others don’t, so I’m not going to make final conclusions. Psychiatry blends the understanding of anatomy and psychology, and so I think a psychiatrist may be better equipped to understand any connections with regard to that. So, is it possible for me to be attend law school, med school, and get PhDs in English, philosophy and psychology?

    If youre extremely motivated, not too concerned with having a family, and want to be in school for the next 30 years!

    Each PhD = 8 yrs
    Med + Law School = 3 years each

    Total = 8×3=24

    Total of 30yrs!!

    sure anything is possible; but eventually you will realize that you don’t want to do all that, and will settle for one of them.

    A psychiatrist needs to be a doctor first so you need to go to med school and take premed, with all the chemistry and biology and math it requires, than you have to take all the philosophy courses too and the English required courses. Let’s not forget about the liberal arts courses which should be at least 50 yo 60 credits.

    Only liberal arts courses will over lap, each major has a set requirement of credits you must take specifically for that major.

    Good luck.

    Ha Ha. Along with all the years in school–don’t forget that you will not be able to work and med school alone could set you back $100,000.00+ plus
