I'm thinking about taking Animal Behavior (easy class, I hope), Immunology, Histology, and Endocrinology as my upper level courses, all in the hopes of preparing myself for medical school. Do these sound good? What's the difficulty rating on these?
I started compiling a list of the classes that I'll have to take for a nutritional sciences (sports medicine concentration) major and I started thinking...I'll have to take all these extra classes, which might end up hurting my GPA. Even though I really want to study sports medicine (I'm convinced that it's something I'll enjoy), maybe it's just too much of a stretch. Most likely, I'll take 5 years to graduate if I double major...and the more classes, the more chances of them fouling up my GPA. I don't even know how hard a nutritional sciences major is (I'm guessing that it's easier than Bio), but I won't take any chances.
I want to major in biology because 1) It is interesting, although not as interesting as nutritional sciences to me, 2) The preprofessional B.S. for Biology covers all of my pre-med classes, 3) I just applied to become a school senator for the College of Sciences, so I have to be a College of Sciences major. Unfortuantely, nutritional sciences is under the College of Health Sciences, which is seperate.
I want to major in nutritional sciences because 1) I like it! 2) It will be pertintent to the rest of my life, 3) It covers most of my pre-med courses (except Organic II and some general biology), 4) 2 semesters of A&P, as well as biochem are required.
So...to get the best of both worlds, I'm thinking of double majoring. If not, I'll probably just end up majoring in Biology. What do you guys think I should do?
