You can take anything that qualifies you for medical school. Once those requirements are done, study what you love. One way to increase your chance of being attractive to medical schools is to excel at math, chemistry and physics. Another way is to add a unique passion to your studies, like a foreign language, or economics, or anthropology. It is too early to specialize in a medical area, but it is not too early to be unique. For example, do you love legal questions and that’s why you are going into forensics? Take law classes. That strengthens your story for when it’s time to apply. Besides top grades, being unique adds to your chances of acceptance.
Along with the Occupational Outlook Handbook, the following websites can give you a deeper understanding about the field of forensic pathology, as well as the career outlook and education needed to be successful.
As stated earlier, your major should be something that interests you and in a discipline where you can grow and thrive. Students typically change majors in college an average of seven times, so make sure that you are able to adapt with your changing interests (i.e. select a university that allows for exploration and offers a variety of areas related to your overarching aptitudes).
The undergraduate experience will be a fun and exciting time. I hope that you will keep your options open and enjoy the ride as well! All the best to you in your educational endeavors --
