What is one advice that you would give Pre-Medical students as they are pursuing to go to medical school?

I am asking because the odds of adding medical school is a small ratio to students that actually take the pre-med prerequisites. With odds like this, many people refuse to take pre-med if they will not have a shot. I am curious to see what professionals think. #college #medicine #medical-school...

I was very set on going to medical school and becoming a doctor this time last year; however, the doctors I have asked have said that they would pursue Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant instead if they were to choose their career over again. What do y'all think? Thanks! #doctor #nurse...

A few of the University's I am looking at do not offer a pre-med major. What would be a good major to enter if the Pre-Med track is not an option(including Chemistry and Biology)do you believe I would be set back by not obtaining the pre-Med track.

Although I have been told it is not mandatory or entirely vital to major in Pre-Med to get into Med School.I would feel more secure in my studies if I majored in Pre-Med or something similar. What are your thoughts? #pre-med ,#medicine #university #major...
