I called the med school I am interested in, spoke with one of the admissions counselors and told her my intended major in photography and minor in missions and she said it was fine as long as I got in the required science courses and some of the recommended science courses, so I will major in Photography, my passion, and minor in biology to cover all necessary and recommended courses.

What are the prereq's for Med school when majoring in something other than science?
Is it the same as the prereq's taken in community college to transfer to a CSU or USC plus an additional of what other classes?
