I would like to go to medical school in the future, but I want a reliable backup plan(in case I dont get into med school). Initially I was thinking of majoring in either mechanical or civil engineering. However, after doing some research I found out that maintaining a good enough gpa in engineering for med school would be extremely difficult.
However, I’ve heard that Industrial Engineering is significantly easier than other types of engineering. Also I find this field to be quite interesting.
How hard would it be to maintain a high gpa (3.6+) in Industrial Engineering while doing premed? I understand it definitely wouldn’t be easy, but is it reasonable to expect that with enough effort that this could be pulled off?
