    No, you have to major in biology (or in pre-med if that's available at your school). Are there any other majors?

    You can major in whatever you want as long as you get the pre-reqs out of the way.

    I double majored in music and French. Pre-med courses are doable provided you do virtually NOTHING else. It totally depends on your program, though.

    That double major will be an incredible amount of work.

    As long as you can fit your prereqs in, you can major in whatever you want.

    Yeah, I dbl majored in music and psych undergrad and was so overloaded that I couldn't have done my pre-reqs if I would've wanted to.

    I spent an extra year getting ready for med school. It was worth it, to me. If you love music & film, do it and enjoy it. Just be prepared for a long road ahead.

    I have to say that at least for me, music major has been time consuming.

    I'm double majoring with biochem, and trying to balance research lab (~15 hr/wk) while trying to maintain 20+ hours of rehearsal and practicing time per week on top of other EC's and taking premed courses and major-required courses... it's a challenge, but if you really enjoy what you do, definitely doable and worth it :)

    I double majored in Liberal Arts and went pre-med - ended up with 146 credit hours. Normal B.A. needs 120 credit hours to graduate...

    haha yeah I just finished junior year and I have 125 credits right now. Sad thing is, I'm predicting at least another 35-40 credit hours during my senior year.
