I am going to be in my senior year of high schooI and have no idea what to do to prepare for a career in dermatology. Does my success in high school play a part in being a dermatologist, because I have not been doing well (due to working all the time, I have not had much time for school work). Will this prevent me from my dream to be a dermatologist. Can I go to a two year college first and transfer to medical school and still be employed as easily as one who has been in medical school all through their years of college? HELP!?!
