    why would they even find out? Are you dropping it after you have applied and your previous transcript said you had a minor?

    Schools dont care that you have a minor. I doubt they'd care if you dropped it.

    Unless you dropped the minor in public and were arrested for child endangerment/abuse, I don't think it will affect admission. What were you doing dropping kids around anyway?

    Yeah, it will only effect you if it's discovered in your criminal background check.

    But to answer the OP's question: most likely noone will care

    If they don't care that you have one, I doubt they'll care if you drop one.

    What about dropping a double major program?

    Med schools won't care about a double major either, so dropping one of the majors is fine.
