Hello, I am a senior in high school and got accepted to the Revelle COllege at UCSD for neuroscience and physiology. I have been hearing a lot lately that UCSD has a very good pre med program. i was wondering if anyone such as former undergrads, med students, etc has any advice for an incoming pre med student that include:
-Should I take any summer school classes to get a head start?
-Should I switch my major to another one in the Biological Sciences that may be less difficult/more interesting?
-Do I have a better chance of getting accepted to the UCSD med school if I went there for undergrad? Same question for acceptances to other UC's such as UCLA or UCF.
-What other activities should I take part in to increase my chances of getting into med school?
-Does UCSD have a better pre-med program than the other UC's because I also got accepted to UCD, UCI, and UCB?
-Is UCSD a good school in general?
I am a very devoted student and would love to become a doctor one day, so I am willingly to try very hard.
I would be appreciative if anyone could answer any of my questions.
