Changing from Honors Specialization to Major Degree

Recommended Posts

I just don't seem myself being vehement about research. A few questions:

1) I've heard this around, but just to confirm, med schools could not care less about what your degree is and whether or not you've done an honors thesis, correct?

2) The one drawback to not doing any research is that I won't get that tasty LOR. Can I still get a great LOR from knowing profs well in small, upper year classes?

I'm assuming you're from UofT? I think they're the only school that does this specialist - major- minor thing.

However, you are correct. Schools will not favour or look down upon you because of your program choice. If you take the time to network with professors in smaller classes, chances are you will get a nice LOR. There are people who haven't done a day of research and got in medical school. You don't need a LOR from a research professor to tick any boxes - as long as your references know you in a professional capacity, they're good.
