hello all,
I am still confused on what to major in. I will be a junior and am currently a psychology major with a minor in Bio. But i was thinking about to just switch to Biology as a major. However, I do need to raise my g.p.a a bit so i thought doing a psychology major would be better to raise my g.p.a, and just take microbio, cell bio, genetics, biochemistry, and anatomy and physiology on the side. What do you guys think????

I did a Bio and a Psyc Major. If I could go back, I'd probably just do Psyc and take some Bio courses on the side.

It really doesn't matter what you major in.

Major in what interests you and what will get you the highest GPA. The take and understand your basic pre-requisites.

That will help you get a spot in med school and once you are in a US/Canadian med school, then it is very hard to fail out. They will help you in every possible way, so you are in a great position.

Stand where you are! my only regret from undergrad is not majoring in something other than bio b/c i knew ecology & the likes of botany were not going to help me in medicine. So major:pysch minor in bio w/required courses (ace them) take physics when your load is not heavy. Good luck,

All wrong answers. Major in what you would want to do if you didn't get into med school or don't survive med school.

I like people who presume to know all of the right answers. :laugh:
