Linda C.’s Answer
My daughter is graduating next weekend with a degree in Biomedical Sciences. She’s been accepted into medical school for the fall.
There are many majors you can pursue and get into medical school. Med schools look for a core group of science courses and high MCAT scores, not for a specific major.
I know of people who majored in music — and excelled in the required science courses and the MCAT — who were accepted into medical school and are now doctors.
You don’t have to have a degree in biology or chemistry, but there are so many required science courses to take that it makes meeting the requirements easier if you major in a related field.
