Hi everyone! I just finished my fourth year and majored in two niche social sciences/humanities programs. Over the last two years I have become more drawn towards studying medicine and hopefully get an opportunity to practice medicine in the future. Its still pretty early for me—I haven't prepped for the MCAT nor have I taken some essential science courses yet (I have taken calculus and bio, but not chemistry or physics). I know some schools don't care about the programs that you take during the undergrad, however, they definitely look into your cGPA and have all sorts of different ways t
Hi everyone, I want to ask your opinion on my following program selections. I am fortunate enough to be accepted to the programs of my choosing, and I now have to decide where I should attend.
