    The GPA to get into engineering school at prestigious universities like UC Berkeley is about as high as Haas Business. The difference is that the classes (math, science) are harder for engineering than the classes for business. I am sure the same for other big name schools like USC, Univ. of Washington, Univ. of Michigan, etc.. Also, pre-med classes are harder than pre-business classes. Many pre-med majors who don't get into medical school will go to their backup plan which is to get into pharmacy, dental, optometry schools or other health school programs such as physical/occupational therapy. All these health professional programs are very hard to get into and granted that the science courses are more difficult to get top grades and comprehend than the business prerequisite courses.

    ^STEM is night & day harder than business. All the math and science classes are abstract. Business concepts are just man made concepts like ROE, NPV...They're just models of what people think stocks or securities will perform. Business in a nutshell is just a combination of psychology, current events, some 8th grade level math with statistics and that's about it. Anyone who think it's a rigorous major, like say aerospace engineering, is fooling herself.

    Pre-med is not a major. It's just a set of classes: bio, o-chem, general chem, physics, math, English and you got to have a 3.5 cumulative GPA, with A-'s or A's in the aforementioned classes, and at least a 32+ on MCAT to be considered for med school, and have clinical internships. Almost everyone I know who did pre-med ended up an econ or psychology major...Yeah, at SC all the pre-med or engineering people who couldn't make it go to Marshall. It's the fallback major.
