College major and medical school

Medical schools are most concerned with the overall quality and scope of undergraduate work. The schools also recognize the desirability of including students with a broad variety of interests and backgrounds in medical school classes. Therefore no one major field is preferred over another.

While the largest number of applicants pursue science majors, admissions statistics show no preference toward this group. English, history and philosophy majors had a higher ratio of acceptance than biology majors. When choosing a major, consider your interests, aptitudes and educational goals.
