Hi Evelyn, Biology is a good choice as a major if you want to go to medical school. Medical schools ultimately does not require a certain major, but many of the students they accept studied the sciences. However, you can major in anything and still go to medical school. I once met a doctor who studied political science, and I had a classmate who majored in Art who is currently in medical school. Studying biology will definitely help you be more prepared than a non-science applicant though. For one, you have the science background, which is also tested on the MCAT. Hope this helps. Best of luck! Best regards, Herman
