Hi everyone!

Schools I am applying to: Lehigh, Lafayette, Muhlenberg(4+4 guaranteed med program) , University of Delaware(honors), Monmouth(4+4 guaranteed med program), Northeastern, The College Of New Jersey, University of Miami, Skidmore

I want to major in something that could keep my GPA high for med school but still be very interesting (i love sciences). So far I have came across Kinesiology and Exercise Science along with Psychology of possible majors. I'd love if someone could help me out with any suggestions!

Thank you SO much!!

I am from New Jersey

My parents do not mind paying full tuition if I get into a great school, but of course, a great school that gives a lot of money would be ideal
