I'm a biochem major thinking of switching to bio be/se I would be able to graduate a year early. I would use the year off to do research and/or work in a health related area. I'd be saving $10,000 on tuition and could earn money to pay for medical school. Do you think this will hurt me as an applicant? stats: cgpa 3.6 sgpa 3.8 activities: RA, gen chem TA, judicial board, study abroad, research, medical assistant(shadowing).
