<p>Hey all, haven't posted since high school. Now im in college and have a little bit of a dilemma.
I was going to be bio major, but was on the fence with bio and biochemistry. I recently found out that at my school (NYU) I could stay an extra year if i be a biochemistry major and take classes at the med school and have a masters degree, as well as a research project that they'll help me get in with.
So, I was originally just gonna do my 4 years, get a bachelors, do some research, and apply to med school.</p>
<p>Is it worth it to do 5 years instead of 4, get a masters and a research project, and THen apply? Will it make a big enough difference?
im rele in a pickle, i have others telling me it wont make a difference if i have a high GPA and good MCATs anyway, and that my school is just looking to get more money... PLZ any HELP</p>
