I need to complete my English requirement, so should take

1) creative writing?
2) health journalism?
3) non-fiction writing?

Thanks in advance.

If you've got a knack for writing good stories then creative writing.
If you're more of a research/ experiment then write about it then non-fiction.
If none of those fit your description then health journalism might just be for you. :p

Ok one more :)

Is it true that med schools don't care for journalism or creative writing?

Truly, I have never heard anything about this one way or the other.

They don't care about your major why on Earth would they care about a general education requirement lol.

It really doesn't matter. That being said, having taken a good comp class will be helpful for your college career, research, PS, MCAT writing section, etc., and a lit course may help w/ the VR on the MCAT....
