Can you major in computer science and still have med school as an option?
I am currently a freshman at UC Riverside, majoring in computer science. I've never had any computer science experience. My main motivation for majoring in this is: a) my dad works in the field, and recommended it to me heavily, b) I know a lot of people who just graduated with the degree and have found good, high paying jobs. So far I really can't tell whether I like computer science or not, since my classes just started. I always have had med school in the back of my mind though, but I don't really want to major in biology or any other similar subject because there is not "safety net" for those majors (meaning the only route there is med school, and what if I don't get in, etc etc.) Although, I do love bio and other science, but still I'd like to have a viable career path. So, how would I keep my med school options open? Do I take the prereqs over summer at another UC or community college? Has anyone successfully majored in comp. sci. and ended up going to med school?
