    Ugh I feel kind of bad asking this question.. I've been frequenting this forum since my senior year of high school. I have planned on dental school for the last 3 years... and still don't plan on changing. As of now I am a biochemistry major.. I for the most part.. i guess enjoy my major. The only thing is I have really gained a passion for language and world culture. Would it look bad when applying to dental school if they see that I changed majors from a Biochem to something like Latin American or along those lines..? Would I be better off just taking some of those classes on the pass/fail and keeping my current major?

    How would they know you changed your major? Im an econ major, we still have to take the same reqs. There is a list out there somewhere I have seen on the % applied and % accepted for different majors.

    just ace your pre-reqs and get good letters from those profs. you'll be fine.

    to the above poster: major changes are displayed on your official transcript... (or at least on mine). even something minute like changing from biotechnology to biochemistry, which is what i did.

    As long as you do well in the pre-req science coures and the DAT, then your major shouldn't matter, do what makes you happy.:thumbup: Plus, you have probably taken most of the pre-req's if you have been a biochem major the past few yrs.
