Hi all, So a lot of the 1st year students who were originally in biomed at York are switching to kinesiology for second year so they can get a higher GPA for med school. Is this the right choice? I really need some suggestions. Some info about me: - in biomed going into 2nd year -my first year GPA was 7.6/9 (not that great) Knowing that second year is going to be tough, I decided to take a lot of the difficult/time consuming courses during first year summer (currently), including: - english (prereq for US med) -organic chem 2020 and 2021 -biol2070 + volunteering at old age home and at a lab so that leaves genetics, cell bio, biochem, and stats for 2nd year major courses, and the rest are electives (i have no idea what electives to choose as gpa boosters, the ones I wanted are already full - some suggestions on this would also be greatly appreciated) I will also be doing a research practicum and 2nd year summer for mcat prep If I switch to kin, I'd have to do first year kin courses, plus I read in another forum that very little kin students were accepted to med school (although I have to check on this) Any suggestions on whether I should switch to kin or continue in biomed?
