<p>I admit, I tried googling this for a while but was unable to find exactly what I wanted, so posting here! Sorry if this has already been asked.</p>
<p>So I really really really want to take up medicine, so I will definitely be fulfilling pre-med reqs. However, I don't want to major in a lab science. My plan currently is to major in Psychology and fulfill pre-med reqs if I get accepted to a liberal arts school, or to major in Business and complete pre-med reqs.
Now, I'm the first in my family going to college and I'm not at all familiar with how this process works. As I understand it, "pre-med" itself is not a major in most schools, correct? So it would be fine to major in something totally different and go to med school? Is it feasible, then, to double major in Business and Psychology while still fulfilling pre-med requirements? Or would it make more sense to choose one over the other? I really want to take classes in both Business and Psychology, along with the requirements for pre-med.
The schools that I'm applying to are: UT Austin (McCombs), Texas A&M (Mays), Rice (Liberal Arts- Psych), University of Washington (Psych/ Foster), University of Chicago (Liberal Arts- Psych), Emory University (Goizueta), Boston University (Psych/ SMG), and University of Michigan (Ross).
For the schools with prominent business programs (ex. Emory) or ones that offer only a liberal arts education (ex. UChicago), what would be the best way of incorporating both Business and Psych?
Can someone also explain what a minor is and how that works?
And for places like UChicago/ Rice, if I decide later that I want an MBA, would it be better to take Econ along with Psych? </p>
<p>Thank you!! And sorry this turned out so long :D</p>
