Allen’s Answer

Do not pick a major based on what would look good for medical school. Schools accept any major provided you have good entrance scores and volunteer experiences. Pick a major based on what you are interested in, with emphasis on having a vision of making the world a better place and you being successful and happy.

Invest time in career counseling to find out your personality type (Meyers Briggs types)

Allen recommends the following next steps:

What are you good at? (Know yourself)
What type of work do I enjoy doing?
What is the future outlook?
What is important to me?

Jamie’s Answer

I would echo engineering, or any technical degree to correspond. Another thing to consider is internships, EMT training, or other relevant job experience that can separate you from the pack.
