One of my top career choices is medical school. However, I know how difficult this career-path is. I want to choose a college major that will both prepare me for medical school and allow for me to get a job immediately after college if I choose not to go to medical school.
I'm in high school hoping to go into either a health or law profession after college. I am currently undecided about which university I want to go to and what my major will be. #college #college-major
Angela D. recommends the following next steps:
Aside from this, any major is acceptable as long as you complete the prerequisite courses.
Typical medical school prerequisites include:
Biology: Lecture – 4 semesters; Lab – 1 semester
General Chemistry: Lecture – 2 semesters; Lab – 1 semester
Organic Chemistry: Lecture – 2 semesters; Lab – 1 semester
Biochemistry: Lecture – 1 semester
General Physics: Lecture – 2 semesters; Lab – 1 semester
Math: Statistics – 1 semester
English: Rhetoric (Composition) and Literature – 2 semesters
I chose biochemistry because the requirements overlapped with premed requirements. Biomechanical or chemical engineering would also be good choices.
