Right, it’s not the major that gets you into med school, it’s more of the discipline that you master from your major

Don't major in humanities because you have to do an extra two years of school to complete the pre-requisites. These majors are completely worthless in medicine. Stick to biology, biochem, histology, nutrition....; these are very useful in medicine.

anyone doing engineering and premed or am i the only one?
Dave Leader (2 месяца назад)
I agree. Pick a major you like. Of course, bio is the most common. That is because the major includes nearly every prerequisite course. I am a dentist, a professor at a dental school. My major was Art History. That made my application stand out.

Hey, Im a comp sci major and Im going into my third year of comp sci and im pretty good at it ,but i'm heavily motivated to do pre-med because of some personal issues. Im thinking of just taking the pre req classes and taking the SAT whilst still in college and MCAT after while I work for a job relating to computer science and then applying to Med- School. I really do not know if I should follow this route. I am just worried on not getting accepted in Medical School because of not so high GPA and test scores. And also its really expensive and I don't think my parents could pay for it.

It looks like acceptance rates and MCAT scores represent how much of an option the individuals have in their careers. For those in bio and spec, they might have felt obliged to apply to a med school because they probably had started out as pre-meds. People from other majors may decide to pursue a medical career if and only if they do well in MCAT. Probably all those math graduates who didn't do well in MCAT didn't even apply.

For anyone who just roaming and doesn't know how to get into med school : 1.) Get a bachelors in ANY major ya feel like (music, sciences, arts, etc) please enjoy it BTW :) 2.) School should offer something for pre med to get to medical school and prepare you for MCAT (basically ACT for medical schools to look at) then take MCAT 3.) Boom you ready to apply 4.) Good luck everybody :)

Since you offer such a detailed account of empirical data, I believe that you would have fun in statistics. In fact, based upon your knowledge and research, I would also guess that you probably would have already fullfilled your math requirement. However, it might be somewhat erraneous to think like since freshman and sophomores can obtain this information just as easily as you have; however, freshman still are probably getting themselves aquainted with their surroundings. Therefore, my reasoning is somewhat flawed since it's based on assumptions rather than empirical data. Yet, I wouldn't be surprised if my assertion was correct, since it is evident to me that you probably have the skills, knowledge, and mannerisms attributable to a successful college student, which you have thusly shown by the way you present your discourse on this subject by offering empirical data and analyzing it. In every day discourse, the general population does not engage in this matter, which i have observed through my own personal daily ethnographic ways of learning how society works around me. And thusly, some incoming freshman probably are unable to present an argument the way you did, avoiding all instances of non-scientific assertions, opinion, and non-credible sources. There's nothing wrong with opinionated writing! However, when people present arguments with just opinion, then their argument becomes more " Feely-toucjy" blog style rather than academic discourse. Since I believe you have already obtained these skills, I believe you already have completed your basic general education. Secondly, that's why I also think you would also like taking statistics, if you haven't taken it already. Science + statistics = empirical. Empirical + humanities + GE = well rounded student. I'm a drama major. However, I'm taking precalculus trigonometry just to be a well rounded student. A seperate trigonometry course may be hard to find in college. However, at my community college , it is called Precalculus II rather than Trig even though Precalculus II only covers trig. When colleges lump everything into 1 quarter, such as the University of Washington, then students mat not be able to grasp all concepts in 10 weeks! But when trig is taught the way we do it, then any college student like me can climb the ladder from elementary algebra. P.S A lot of students nay not know what College Algebra or Precalculus is. You might consider doing a video for this to clarify this information for future students. College Algebra also known as Precalculus 1 (at my school) or Math for Business and Social Sciences, which is a college algebra coursed aimed at business and social sciences. If there is a prerequisite of precalculus or college algebra, then it's a calculus course instead. It covers Transformations, a review of functions and domain/range, a continuation of some toolbox functions square root of X, x^2, x^3, 1/x^2. It also covers optimization parabolic word problems and reviews parabola transformations as well. It also includes graphs of iverses as well as what a composition is and how to decompose a function. It also includes an algebraic intro to rates of change. That's what college algebra is. While intermediate algebra introduces parabolas, it does not get into transformations nor does it touch on the value of e or e^x. Nor does it cover radioactive decay. That's all college algebra.. Intermediate algebra is the study of rational expressions, square roots, work word problems, quadratic equation, vertex form, formulas, distance formula, and 2 variable equations. What's precalculus and how does it differ from Math for Social science and business majors? Bottom line: specific business and science applications of algebra that does not teach trigonometry. Precalculus: college algebra AND trig including polar coordinates, intro to vectors, and parametric equations. Unlike high school precalculus, intro to limits are generally NOT COVERED due to time constaints on a quarter system and is up to the teacher and thusly is reserved for Calc 1. Conic sections may or may not be covered in a precalculus course. In Washington state, conic sections are generally skipped in a community college precalculus course. But there are no guarantees if your college professor will teach Conic sections in a precalculus course. In California, conic sections and mathematical induction is included in Precalculus. In Washington state, mathematical induction may or may not be covered in precalculus. At my community college, precalculus II is just trigonometry. At Seattle community colleges, it covers induction but still no conic sections. I have asked my teacher about comic sections and summation, and I was told that calculus sections will review that material and generally is not reserved for precalculus. So that's how college precalculus can be different from high school. High school has a full year to cover everything,, whereas most colleges teach it in 10 weeks, 2 quarters broken up, or a 16 week semester. I totally went off topic!

This is very interesting because, back-in-the-day, they made it seem like the people that excelled in the humanities and social sciences weren't logically-minded thinkers. Now that they have changed the model for how math is taught in many schools (Common Core, more conceptual - seems to benefit "humanities and social science people" the most.

I read that the highest acceptance rate is actually dance majors. Obviously there aren't many of those applying though. It is a mentally and physically demanding major that shows dedication I guess. Early morning and long days as well.

I'm a premed and my major is biochemistry. On a serious note, I got scared when I saw that 50% of people in med school were in biological sciences but then the acceptance rate for each made me feel a lot better. Thanks!
Andrew McClarken (5 месяцев назад)
3:40 Well humanity sciences may have the highest acceptance rate, but look how much more people majored in biology. Then seeing that nearly 40% of the majors of biology were accepted makes it clear that most people accepted still majored in biology.
Gladson Abraham (3 месяца назад)
I was going to same thing as well. They have a higher acceptance rate because there are a fewer amount of applicants that get accepted overall. BUT, they do score higher than bio majors. And that is something that is universal for all majors: MCAT score.
Cheng-kou Tongkhuya (5 месяцев назад)
I mostly do not agree with your assessment. biology, physics, math will give a more competitive application compare to other majors. other majors need to score higher on the MCAT compensate. of course there is many different ways to get into med school but if you want to guaranty yourself a spot, the real game here is to be the most competitive applicant. one needs to give oneself an edge over the other applicant, and the truth is majors are not weighted equally. well there's much more to say about getting into med school or dental school but I'm just gonna stop here. Agree or not just think about what I'm saying.
ann wan (5 месяцев назад)
one of my hypotheses for bio students doing “worse” is because a lot of more bio students applied so the group of people applying is probably more diverse? idk and as for other majors, i feel like they applied because they knew they knew they could get in? since usually they wouldn’t go for medicine?

L humanities majors have those nice easy classes to give them that GPA boost, which is kinda meh if you ask me. Of course everybody has to take the same pre-reqs but a nice GPA boost from your actual major doesn't hurt. Just my personal opinion, every humanities class I've taken in college was 10x easier with 5x less work then any bio/chem/phys

Honestly, my premed trackway is crazy. My major is Chinese language. ... haha, As a trilingual I really have a knack for languages so I can focus on the science classes and have a balance with it. But, being Mexican immigrant, it is quite hard due to immigrational stuff, so I am stuggling a bit, but I am determined!

bighands69 (5 месяцев назад)
For med school you are going to need exceptional chemistry, Good biology, Good Physics and good Mathematics. And on top of all of that you will need to be gifted academically and a good worker. Now if you are average academically you can still make it if you are very very dedicated and put in all the hours and hours of fine practice. Being a doctor is like a professional athlete in that it made up of the best of the best and it probably would be easier to be a professional athlete.

I wish this had been explained to me in detail during my freshman year. I started undergrad a bio major with hopes of going pre-med. Graduated with a degree in Communications, and recently found out that there is no particular major necessary to get into med school. Sooooo now I am pursuing a 2nd Bachelor's in Psychology and will later being going to med school.

What's the difference between major in Health Sciences and major in Biology for pre-med international student?
Paul Mallory (7 месяцев назад)
Majoring in chemistry is a sure win for medical school. Everyone majors in biology and biological sciences because it's extremely easy. Majoring in chemistry (and maintaining a 3.7+ GPA in chemistry) shows the admissions board you can handle hard courses and that you're ready to go for medical school. A good route would be a chemistry major with a concentration in biochemistry, perhaps a biology minor as well. Plus, if you don't get in you're good to go for pharmacy school since foundational knowledge in upper division chemistry courses is required for pharmacy school.
