I've been a Biochem major for the past two years. I will be a Junior this upcoming Fall. Last Spring, I realized I had no passion in the pursuit of becoming a doctor and always found myself thinking about the possibility of art while studying.. The pressure, competitiveness, and pre-med cutthroat peers in my classes made me grow bitter toward science. This summer I have taken a break from anything science related and took two art classes. I really enjoyed them and have leaned more and more towards studying Art as my major.. This past month, I have realized that I could combine my passion for art with science and pursue dentistry! I have taken a majority of the pre-reqs required for most dental schools. My overall GPA is a 3.81 and my Math/Science GPA is a 3.69. My question is whether or not I should continue on my Biochem track or switch to an Art Major (Graphic Design). I'm concerned about staying a Biochem major due to the chances of lowering my GPA. I would have to balance however many science classes a semester with also getting shadowing and volunteer work done. (I have yet to acquire any adequate hours these past two years due to family situations.) I don't want to burn out. As a Graphic Design major, I would be able to pursue what I'm more interested in and most definitely have an easier time keeping my GPA up. I would stand out in the sea of the bio/chem applicants as well as get skills working with my hands. I'd be able to focus more on studying for the DAT and getting higher grades in my remaining pre-reqs instead of attempting to balance a bunch of science classes at one time. With this major change, I would have to take at least one more year of schooling as well as many summer classes. Thoughts?
