Hello, I am curious as to what would happen if you persued a non-science undergraduate direction and if it would directly corrolate to my chances of getting into medical school? Would getting my undergraduate degree in a business related field be harmful towards my med school chances? As long as I took the pre-requisites I should be fine, right? I love all things business/marketing, but I also am deeply interested in the medical field. All answers help. Thanks!!

As long as you complete your pre-reqs the actual degree you obtain does not influence your chances of getting into medical school. If anything it sounds more interesting that all the boring biology majors (like myself) an interviewer must face.

Your major has no influence on how you look to adcoms. As long as you do the pre-reqs and do well on the MCAT, they'll see you as qualified.
