I'm a business major at ASU right now. (Entering my junior year) I'm considering applying for MD/PhD on a medicinal chemistry track. While it might sound off the wall, organic REALLY got me into chemistry. I wasn't able to get involved in any research with the department this semester, so I did RA work on an Alzheimer's caregiving study with the psych department. I have a 3.90 and have volunteered in a local ER since Spring Freshman year. This summer I will probably do work in medicinal and computational chemistry. Assuming I manage to amass some good research experience in the field over the next year and given good MCATs, do I have a shot? Another thing that will probably come out of my research is an honors thesis that I will defend senior year. Should I go for a chem minor? Switch to a chem major? Would a BA be alright - it wouldn't set me back nearly as much? Take PChem and/or analytical? The original intent of the business degree was to have a better understanding of how it worked - since a lot of doctors end up woefully underprepared. Given good essays and the ability to cogently explain my reasoning as an interview, do I have a chance if I graduate with the BS in Econ, Marketing, or Supply Chain? I am between a rock and a hard place on this one - I know the MSTP program would take a long time after undergrad, so it isn't in my best interest to set myself back. Your thoughts?
