One thing that helped with my education was that it was always assumed I would go to college. Like I was never asked "Do you think you will go to college?" It was "Where do you think you will go to college?" Beyond that, there was heavy pressure to go for an MD. I ultimately decided on my own to not get an MD, but I don't think going for a Psy.D. is too shabby as a backup plan.
