SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello, I am currently pre-pre-med, working full-time as a Firefighter. I have been mapping out my path to Med School and have come to a crossroads. I'm not 100% sure this is where this post belongs, but I figured you all would have more quality information than a forum of pre-meds... Path #1 is the B.A. Peace, War and Defense program at UNC-Chapel Hill. Path #2 is the B.S. Biology with a Human Biology concentration (tailor made pre-med degree) at NC State. Both involve taking a year at my local CC but assuming I am accepted to both schools which would be best for USUHS? I worry I won't be able to focus enough on the sciences to do as well as I'd like on the MCAT and MS1/2 with the PWAD track, but worry I might have a lower GPA with the hard sciences of the Bio track. I think the PWAD studies would be easier and more fun, but I am also very interested in the sciences. Also, I don't know how this actually plays out but I see on a lot of the science course descriptions that a large percentage of seats are reserved for science majors. Would it be a likely issue that I would need to completely rearrange my academic plan to allow for missed classes? NCSU has a pre-med committee and UNC-CH does not. Also I have been corresponding with the chair of NCSU's committee for about a month and she has been helping me tremendously. She has told me to go where I feel the best fit, but I can't help but think I will be better off with her invaluable advising. Any thoughts, light-bulbs, etc are welcome. Thank you all.
