I want to graduate from medical school and become a radiologist. Specifically, I would love to work with ultrasound, but things like MRI and x-rays interest me as well.

Context: I've heard that you're not required to major in biology or chemistry to apply to medical school. I do love the sciences, but I would love to take the opportunity to get myself a well-rounded education too. I'm thinking about some majors right now. I wish to study French or maybe math, alongside pre-med classes. I'm not really sure what medical schools are looking for extracurricular-wise, so I need some help planning that. Some job shadowing and volunteering at a hospital would be amazing experiences. I want to become a radiologist because I think it's a way for me to make a positive difference in the world. I've been studying in school my entire life, which is great, but there's no point unless I use my hard-earned skills to change my community for the better. Medicine is an incredible way to accomplish just that.
College: I'll likely be a French or math major.
Other Education: medical school, residency, fellowship
Activities: I'm unsure about this one.
Job Experience: I haven’t had any yet.
Soft Skills: I love talking to people and working as a team!
Hard Skills: I'm bilingual and currently learning a third language, which is French. I'm also good at science and math.
Other: N/A #college #career #medicine #radiology

I'm still deciding between radiology, ophthalmology, mechanical engineering, and aerospace engineering.

If I go into medicine, I want to major in biochemistry and volunteer at a hospital. After that, I want to go immediately to medical school (after taking the MCAT, etc.), before applying for residency/fellowship. If I go into engineering, I can major directly in engineering and go from there. I think I'll be all right with a Bachelor's degree in engineering, but I might also go to graduate school in either mechanical or aerospace engineering. Currently, I'm struggling with my college search. I have no idea which colleges I want to go to, and I'm not sure where to start. #engineering #career #medicine #mechanical-engineering

When do you apply for a pre-med track?

Hello, I heard that when you apply to some colleges, they ask you to indicate what you want your track to be (pre-med, pre-dental, pre-law, etc.) if you want a track. I thought that you only decided if you wanted to take a track when you actually got to registering for college classes. Does...

Spread-out interests in college application

Hello, Of course, college admissions officers say that they like seeing people who are extremely involved in one or two activities, and that students with too varied and superficial activities do not have the best example of a good college application. Of course, I know that colleges will...
