premed Feb 16, 2020

If you hope to get into medical school one day, you first have to pick a helpful premed major.

Today’s video gives three easy steps that will help you pick your major and help you get into med school.


  • When you’re considering a premed major, take these three things into consideration in order.
  • First, choose something that will allow you to excel both in the classroom and as a premed. Find something you’re exceptional in that will allow you to improve your GPA and solidify yourself as a successful premed.
  • Ideally, find something you’re already a bit familiar with. You also want a major that will have the right support for you with the proper professors and curriculum.
  • Improve study skills so you’ll be able to ace your classes while also engaging in extracurriculars.
  • Second, be sure you can excel efficiently in your major. Think about the number of classes, how hard they are, what med school prerequisites you need, etc.
  • Think about schedule flexibility. See if your major has a strict sequence of classes or if you can pick something a little less rigid. You also want to show medical schools that you can handle a heavy workload.
  • Third, pick a major that you’re excited about! When you’re excited, you’re engaged. It will be so much easier to improve focus, concentration, and efficiency when you actually like what you’re doing.
  • Be sure to follow these three tips IN ORDER. The first tip is the most important, so be sure to hit that one first before considering the other two.
