Hey everyone, I am caught in a dilemma between choosing Economics/Pre-Med as a major versus Physics /Pre-Med. Currently I'm a high school senior and have taken advanced courses in physics and done quite well, however, not top of my class well. I am also mediocre in math (inclusive of calculus) and am beginning to wonder whether or not I will be able to maintain a high GPA (necessary for acceptance into a good medical school) if I was to major in Physics in college, and the course material gets to be over my head in later courses. I also dont want to go the biochemistry, biology, chemistry, etc. route b/c I feel that it too will end up not being conducive to a high GPA in addition to not being all that interested in it, feeling that it requires too much rote memorization. So, alas, I have come to think of taking Economics/Pre-Med. I feel that it is more useful then physics would be to a doctor and also would be easier to obtain a high GPA in. What are your opinions on this? Will this end up being more difficult then the aforementioned majors? Thanks.
