I am going to be an undergraduate at the University of Iowa next year. I'm pretty sure that I would like to pursue medicine, but that's some I'd like help figuring out. I have had experience in a medical research lab and I have volunteered in a lab previously. I've been heavily involved in extracurriculars and I am trying to decide which ones to continue. I'm trying to figure out a major. I'm thinking of biology with a focus in neurobiology or biotechnology. Our school also has a physiology major that looks appealing. Other majors, such as journalism and business look appealing, but I'm wondering what type of benefit I gain by taking those. I have 30-40 credit hours walking in, with Calc 2 from a university and statistics. I'm not familiar with the different pre-med activities. I know that you need to take an MCAT and apply early senior year. I also know that it's recommended you get clinical experience and volunteer, but I'm not sure how the best way to approach either of these would be. (ex. work in a lab or shadow). I guess what I'm trying to ask if any more experienced people have some words of wisdom for me as I head into college green behind the ears.
