Rachel’s Answer

Any 4 year university should be able to provide you with all of the premed requirements (1 year biology, 1 year inorganic chemistry, 1 year organic chemistry + labs, physics, calculus, and biochemistry). I would look at each school individually and see which fits your personality and desired major (does not have to be science) best.

Pick a college that suits your personality and a major that interests you. You will need to get good grades in college in order to apply for medical school. At the medical school I attended, the average GPA is reported to be 3.85, so even one or two B's can hurt your chances of acceptance.

If your plan is to attend medical school then the first step is to enroll in a four-year college where you can complete your pre-med requirements which vary between medical schools but are essentially math and science courses. You do not have to pick a science major in college as long as you complete the pre-med requirements, earn good grades, maintain a high GPA, and find time for volunteering and shadowing you are on the right track. Good luck!

PS: You can also attend a two-year community college which can be more affordable and take some of the pre-med requirements offered there and then transfer after two years to complete your junior and senior year at a four-year institution. I know many people who have taken this route and have been successful.

Once you have your bachelor's degree and have completed all the pre-med requirements then you can focus on applying to medical school.

Any for your college that allows you to complete your premed requirements and obtain a bachelor’s degree will qualify you for medical school. It doesn’t really matter where you go to college as long as you have a good GPA, a good MCAT score, and strong letters of recommendation. However, certain states like Texas prefer applicants in Texas over out-of-state applicants. So, if you do want to go to medical school in a certain state, you might want to consider applying to that college or college is in that state. Best of luck on your journey to becoming a physician.

Dante’s Answer

It will depend on what you want to specialize in.

FIRST: What area of medicine do you want to pursue as a career?

SECOND: Go to to research on that career.

THIRD: Google all of the medical schools in your state to see if they offer a program for that career field.
