Is there another major that is easy to finish while doing the premed track and a biology major?
I am interested in pursuing a biology major while finishing a premed track in college. I am just wondering if there is another major that people think are similar or have similar requirements as these other requirements that would be manageable to accomplish too. #major #choosing-a-major #double-major #majors #biology #biology
In terms of double majoring however, it can be difficult because as a premed you have plenty on your plate to do well in classes, MCAT and get experience outside of academics, such as volunteering and shadowing, along with research if possible. You could minor as well if a different subject or topic interests you, and this can give you diversity as well that could help you in your future career goals. I hope this has helped, keep working hard!
Best of luck!
When considering a attending medical school, be sure to go to the website of each medical school you'd like to attend to see their Undergraduate course requirements. Do keep in mind that they typically want young candidates with a high Undergraduate GPA, like a 3.75 or higher, and high scores on the MCAT (medical college admissions test). You do NOT have to have an Undergraduate degree in science. Many students have other degrees to keep a high GPA. Then they take the additional Undergraduate courses required by the medical school. Good medical schools post the GPA, major, and undergrad degree of the latest students accepted.
It is advisable to pick an undergraduate degree that you love, because medical school is extremely competitive; so just in case you do not get accepted, you have a degree in a career that you can pursue and be happy.
You can also study for the MCAT early in your freshman and sophomore years in college to ensure you will make a good score.
Khan Academy has a wonderful, FREE review.
There may also be medical school preparatory programs at your university or in your state that help prepare qualified students for medical school.
One of majors that you would benefit is Biochemistry. You will find that useful when preparing for the MCAT.
