With proper planning and high achievement, a student can gain acceptance into medical school with any Eckerd College major.
Here are four good reasons for Eckerd pre-medical students to major in chemistry or biochemistry.
- Roughly 100% of Eckerd’s chemistry and biochemistry majors who apply to medical school are accepted.
- Exactly 100% of the science and math courses most commonly required for medical school admission also count for the Eckerd chemistry and biochemistry degree requirements. With a chemistry or biochemistry major you’ll take courses which count for both medical school and Eckerd graduation.
- Should your interests in medicine change, you’ll have a degree with enough depth for a good job or admission to an excellent graduate program.
- Chemistry and biochemistry majors are the only Eckerd students who are exempted from senior comprehensive exams, provided the chemistry seminar course is successfully completed.
