    Should I pursue an extra major or a double minor?

    Hi all, I'm a rising junior this fall, and I'm on track to finish my Biology B.S. early, and as such, have time to pursue another major (or double minor). I know already that doing this will really give me minimal benefit in terms of being admitted to medical school. It's more just something I...

    BS v. BA?

    Hi friends, I'm back again. (Did you miss me? :) ) I had a quick question regarding which would be better for medical school. I have the option of getting a BA in biology with a minor in whatever I choose, or just a BS in biology. I wanted to know if medical schools have a preference (I've been...

    Adding a minor

    I'm majoring in biology but I plan on minoring in music. Since my school transcript won't show minors, is there a place you could put it down in the AADSAS? I know minors don't matter that much but if there's an option to put it on the application, I think it'd still be good to do so. Either...

    Double majoring/minoring?

    I fully understand that double majoring has no real positive impact on the chances of getting into medical school; it will definitely stand in the way of prepping for the MCAT and keeping my GPA up. However, I am passionate about intelligence studies. If not double majoring, would it be possible...

    Senior year course load

    Hi everyone! I am a rising senior and have finished essentially all my major courses already. With the extra room in my schedule, I am debating whether I should pursue a minor (probably either in English or History) or just take random classes that interest me. Any thoughts on whether one is...

    Hello, I am interested in becoming a Physical Therapist, but I am just beginning to enter a university for my BS in Exercise Science/Kinesiology. Also, I am interested in studying either horticulture, geology, or English as a minor. Would it be wise for me to pursue a minor in a unrelated field...

This thread might sound a bit redundant or even a bit mislead, but I am trying to work out my pre-reqs so I can officially declare myself pre-med, but my school is coming down hard on me to declare my major. So here's my situation. I love psychology. I'm fascinated by the way the...

    Minors that look good on application?

    Hey all, I'm approaching the end of my first year of my undergrad, but I took 36 credits of college courses in high school, so I "could be" a full year ahead. However, since a lot of my science courses have to be taken consecutively, there's basically no way I'm going to be able to graduate with...

    Science Minor for Post-Grad Research Position

    I know that for med school, the general consensus is that a minor does nothing to help your application. My major is in health and I need one more class for a biology minor. My question is: do you think having the biology minor would help in any way possibly getting a research position as a job...
