I go to a four-year state college and I have an AA, getting a non-medical bachelor's degree at the moment. Do MD or DO schools care if you have a university degree? The degree program I'm currently enrolled in is supply chain management, so moving toward a bachelor's in another field will require some research. That, and it will be more expensive. That's why I'm wondering if it matters at all, or if there is any statistical data on the subject.
My GPA is currently only 3.20 or so, so I know they will consider that as well (Trying to bring it up to a 3.5)
Also, do they take age into account at all when reviewing an application? (I won't be entering until I'm 32-33.)
Thanks.

As an addendum to my previous post, would a bachelor's in environmental science with a specialization in biosecurity count as a "med"-related field? Because they do offer that at my college, though I know very little about it.

The CC-> UG school path is fine. But double check on MSAR as to which md schools won't accept coursework from Ccs.

Med schools don't care what your major is, only that you do well.
