    Switch Undergrad Major?

    I am a sophomore student who recently changed majors to exercise science/pre-pt after realizing engineering was not something I was interested in. I originally chose to switch to exercise science because I could still graduate in 4 years and go on to PT school. Now however I am seeing the...

    Grad School Before Vet School: What Are You Majoring In?

    Hi all, I still have a year and a half left of undergrad (getting a B.S. in Zoology) and my GPA has been hovering right around 3.00 for the past year (mainly because I suck at math and physics), so I am strongly considering getting a masters or PhD in something to bump my GPA up before...

Assuming I take all my "Pre-Med" prerequisites and do well on the MCAT, will my major negatively impact my chances at getting into medical school? I was thinking about picking...

I am a freshman bio major about to complete my first semester with a 3.6 gpa (it would have been higher if I hadn't gotten two B's, both of them B+'s though) and have been working as a...

    Lots of question, any advice would be helpful.

    Relatively useful information: going to be a high school junior, 3.9 GPA, 26 ACT, very VERY limited in-state college options (two or maybe three that are useful to the medical field), seriously interested in becoming a type of psychiatrist. I'll start with my ACT. It's my first and only score...

    All the hate on multiple majors?

    Preface: I hereby declare that multiple majors do not in any measurable way increase your chances of getting into medical school or the MD/PhD program. Do not crucify me. However, one of the biggest slights against modern education is the notion that majoring in more than one thing, or even...

    Bio Education Major good or bad for med school

    I'm a biology education major with a minor in physical science education. Here are what I perceive as being pros: 1. I'll learn to work with kids and get experience working with kids. I'm pretty sure I want to be a pediatrician. 2. I'll have a clear career path if I decide not to go into...
