Please post your major and why you decided to major in that field. I'm lumping biochem majors in with bio majors so please don't post here if you're in biology, molecular biology, or biochemistry. I'll start off. I'm declaring political science and I choose this field after taking comparitive politics and realizing that I really would not mind attending a school of foreign service after undergrad to earn a Master's in International Relations or Foreign Affairs. I enjoy studying international relations and I actively read (and have a subscription to) Foreign Affairs and I'll probably purchase a subscription to The Economist as well. I enjoy writing papers in poli sci and don't really consider it "work" at all. I haven't checked the MSAR...but I heard that humanities majors have a HIGHER rate of admission to medical school than biology majors. I think Nutmeg mentioned this in one of his posts. Is this true? Also, does anyone know the MCAT average for humanities/social science majors? My advisor in the college of letters and science told me that medical schools will look favorably on applicants who didn't follow the cookie-cutter, traditional path to med school. I'm defining the "cookie-cutter" path as declaring biology as your major, doing hospital volunteering, and lab research. I'm not trying to knock people who volunteer in hospitals or do research, I'm just stating that it's become far too common among applicants.
