    It's not needed, but if there are two subjects you'd like to study in depth...

    Med schools don't care if you double major or triple major or take every major at your school. Chill out, take some interesting classes, and don't worry so much about padding your application.

    I totally agree with ValleyGal. Don't double major (or dual major) because you think it will look good with AdCom people. Personally, I think it works against you if you double major and one of your majors is not something you feel passionate about. Remember that people who interview you has a lot of life experiences and they can see through your masks and whatnot. Double major and study something that you really like to know about. That way, you are going to be passionate about it when people start talking to you about what you study.

    I straight-up told my interviewer that I hate my major (didn't always). He laughed cause he could relate.

    :D
