Hello everyone,


First, let me introduce myself. My name is Jamny and this is my first post. I am 21 and have always had an interest in Medicine. I am an EMT and work in an ambulance company. I decided to become an EMT because I thought it would satisfy my hunger for medicine while I planned out what I really wanted to do. I became too involved and lost a lot of time, I figured I would just continue and become a Paramedic. However, I don't feel I will be satisfied and I don't want to regret for the rest of my life, not studying what I truly wanted.


For the past three years I've been panning all sorts of amazing plans. "Go to X University, get my B.S. in Microbiology or Biology. Then go to X Medical School and become a physician." I made plans to travel abroad to the Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS) and complete their summer pre-med program. I accomplished non of these, of course. All this time I was attending a community college and wasting my time. I was so unhappy that I started dropping the courses and focusing on work. Now I want to stop planning and DO something!


Sooooo, I came to the conclusion that I want to move to Canada and follow my dreams, as corny as it sounds. I enjoy living here is sunny Miami, Fl, but I've always wanted to see different places, and I feel this choice will help me reach my goal.


After all my rambling, my question is..... will Canadian Universities accept a G.E.D.? I have a high school diploma, but i was home schooled my senior year and that high school diploma is only accepted by Florida state Universities and Colleges. Therefore, I am getting my G.E.D. and attempting to apply with it. I'm also wondering if there any ways of improving my chances for acceptance.


Any help will be GREATLY appreciated. I'm sorry for the long message. :D
