D2 wants to pursue an MD or a Pharmacy degree after UG. What is the best major for this:
Biology, Microbiology, Chemistry or Chemical Engineering?
We visited the campus recently and were very impressed. Chemical Engineering sounds like a great option except that there is a real potential for getting a lower than a desirable GPA ( < 3.7 ) which could eliminate our daughter's chances of going to Med school.
She is a presidential scholar. If she pursues a non-Engineering major she might lose the $2,500 per year scholarship. So, we have to weigh the potential for lower GPA against getting an additional $10,000 over four years.
