Hello everyone! I'm not sure if this is the right thread for these questions, but here goes. I'm just starting premed and have a 3.9 sGPA and 3.5 cGPA, I've been volunteering in the community at animal shelters and signing up for any volunteer work that my college posts. Where would I start if I wanted to get some research experience? My intended school doesn't list any math courses as a requirement, do you think this is accurate? What degree did you have when you applied to med school? Will nursing be enough or should I go get a biology degree or something? What extracurriculars did you do, how much shadowing, any research? Do they care about your overall GPA or just your science GPA? Does your science GPA mean all science courses, or just those that are required for premed? I've just graduated with an AS in nursing, will the clinical hours I did during school count for anything on my application? I'm struggling on whether I should spring for a BS in something while minoring in premed, or just make premed my focus and get to the required 90 credit hours that my school of choice asks for, since it says MOST matriculate with a BA or BS, I'm wondering if it's possible to get in with an AS + premed courses instead. Any guidance you can give me would be much appreciated! I have no friends in the program, am a first generation college student with no one to turn to for advice, and none of my current professors seem to know anything about it.
