Hi there. I am Marcella from

You are interested in being a Forensic Pathologist ? That's awesome ! It will take alot of education, however. You need to get a bachelor's degree in a physical science such as Chemistry or Biology first. Then go to Medical school, pass that, then do an internship and post-doc work to specalize in forensics. It will take about 10-12 years, but they make $100-175k/year in the US, so not too bad.

There are alot of other options that still get you in forensics. I am a forensic serologist, for example.

Check out for more information.

Good luck,
