Best college major for Pre-med?
I want to become a doctor and i know i can either major in biology, chemistry, or biochemistry or do a double major in bussiness/bio chemistry. I heard chemistry is the hardest major and that biochemistry is harder than biology so i think i will major in bioloy because i don't want my GPA to suffer. How ever i am confused about the whole credit/hours thing in college. The AP classes I have taken/ going to take are: AP human geography, AP world history, AP art history, AP stat, AP chemistry, AP us history, AP english 3, AP english 4, AP bio, AP physics B, AP Calculus AB, AP 3D sculpture, AP Gov, AP economics, and AP physchology. And lets say i got a 4 in all of them. How will these classes help me? Is it worth taking AP physics and stuff? What classes do I have to take in 4 years of undergraduate to major in biology and minor in bussines? And I heard that to be a biology major I need like 16 hours of biology classes or something. What does that mean? Is one semester one year and does one semester equal 2 credits and 6 hours? With my AP classes what classes can I skip in college and how long will it take me to finish undergraduate school considering that I won't fail anything? And do the professors teach well or do I have to get tutoring separately? Thanks I am so confused. I gues I want to know how the college system works?
