Mechanical Engineering major

Hi, I'm a mechanical engineering (with a minor in biology) major at Notre Dame (honors engineering program). I was wondering how this major could translate to the prospect of med school in the future. The reason I'm an engineering major is because I really enjoy physics and could potentially see myself as a biomedical engineer, but I may want to be a doctor. Assuming I take all pre-med requirements, would med schools look at this in a favorable light?

Thanks for your input!

Watch out for your junior level classes (Fluids, Thermo, Mech. of Materials, etc) and you should be fine. Once you get to your design classes, it's cake.

Another thing I'd recommend as a ME is to look for some medical device companies nearby to intern for if you have the time. The internship are pretty much always paid and you get some good exposure to some to the stuff being used and in the pipeline for the medical field today.
