I'm currently a junior and the time is coming where you have to declare your major. It seems most major is biology but I was wondering if majoring in something like biochemistry would help me stand out or do the admins look at the science degrees as pretty much the same thing?
Thanks

You major does not matter, although some schools prefer a science major such as biology or biochemistry. There's no major that will make you stand out(maybe underwater basket weaving). I think it is important to major in something you like.

Just do well and ace your pre-req classes whether you're a english major or a science major. Your GPA is what matters at the end of the day.
