First, an update: Hello Everyone! It has been a while since I've posted here. For the Fall and Winter semesters, I have been living the life of a hermit crab . I can proudly say I destroyed my first year of college with a 3.97. (And no cheeser classes either). To those who say Organic 1 + lab, Calc 2, and Bio 1 + lab are really hard to take at the same time, I can testify that if you put your mind to anything, you can succeed. The moral: Don't shy down from a challenge, instead embrace it. Moving on, my question is about the certification of my degree and how affects my application. I am persuing a B.S. in Biochemistry but the snag is that my university isn't credited to be able to hand out these degrees. Instead, they hand out a B.S. in Chemistry with a CONCENTRATION in Biochemistry. (From what I know, the exact cirriculum I'm following isn't "certified" by some national organization) Does that hinder my application to medical schools by not having a credited Biochem degree? If I decide not to go to Medical School and decide to go to another university like U of M to pursue Biochem further (Grad School), will they accept my B.S.? Any other problems/concerns I should look into? Any response is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
