I got in with an undergrad degree in psychology. My friend got in with a degree in French. Most of my class got in doing some sort of science, but really I agree with CaribMD in saying that you should just pick something you like doing.
Hey does this mean that for an example Music. If i have a music degree how on Earth could I pass the MCAT?? Are you saying you took the classes that you needed but just had a major that had nothing to do with medicine...?
Yes any major means you still have to take the 1 yr of Bio, chem, ochem and physics
but that would be it
the GPA is seen as the same as a GPA in Bio
In fact to make this clear
there is no such thing as a "Harder school or Harder Major" all they care about is the GPA
You have to look at it this way:
To a person who music does not come easy then its a hard major but to the "Gifted" its not as hard and they do well
To a person who physics is a complete mystery even after hours of study then they will not do well and doing a major in Physics is really unwise yet to those who Physics is a joy and "Easier" then they will have high GPA's
DO you see where I'm coming from?
