i graduated med school in 1993 and have been a family physician for 20 years.
in my day the required courses were:
calculus, physics, biology, chemistry, and organic chemistry.
i think they also required a social science. but since most majors also require that i tend to forget about that one.
i agree with the previous respondent that your particular major is completely up to you just as long as you complete the pre-med required classes. personally, i majored in business management. however, the majority of med school students still major in biology or chemistry.
also want to encourage you during college to go beyond the "required" courses and try to take one or more of the "recommended" pre-med courses. they help prepare you for the med school curriculum and the admissions commitees look very favorably on them. some of those classes are:
microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, physiology, anatomy.
