I'm just completing my undergraduate degree. I'm confused on just how far I want to go after that. In my country (Canada), you have options if your grades are good. Law school, medical school (well medical school is a stretch), or an MBA stuff like that.
Ultimately, those careers are about the money and prestige, which is fine. It's not wrong to want to work hard to earn money for yourself and your future family.
What does bother me, however, is that I didn't get to do a lot of things growing up. I didn't get to take art classes, learn how to skate, learn how to dance... I did all those things at the beginner level but never furthered my interest in them.
I want to do those things now. I feel if I choose to become any of the above careers my life won't seem empty, because I'll have so much going on for me. My career will just be one aspect of my life.
Do you think this is a good strategy?

What most people fail to take into account until it's too late is the typical work-life balance of the career you get into. Making a ton of money is no good if you have no time to enjoy it. If you bust your ass your whole life thinking you'll enjoy it when you retire, you'll end up with a ton of regrets.
Likewise, if you pick something that's super lax, but you're constantly worried about bills or security, you won't be able to be happy either. You need to find the sweet spot. A job that will pay you well enough, but that will still give you enou spare time to pursue interests and hobbies as you see fit.0
