I am currenty a Firefighter/Paramedic, but I have been spending a lot of time around Doctors and thought a lot about going to Medical school. I am currently taking Chem 1 and A&P 1 right now. I understand that in order to apply to most Medical schools you need a Bachelors degree. The only Bachelors programs that my A.S degree from Paramedic school seems to transfer to are Bachelors of Applied Sciences. Is this an acceptable degree to apply to Medical school with? Or would I be better off just taking an extra year or so and getting a Bachelors in say Biomedical Science, Bio, Chem, or even a BS in Nursing? The majority of people that I see who apply have either a B.A or a B.S, not a B.A.S. Any comments would be helpful. Thanks a lot.
