Usually universities have major 'maps' with course requirements (core & potential electives) listed for each degree. I've thrown away the possibility of pre-med as my route, but I've made most of my way through my bachelor's in biochemistry(which many pre-med students are in). If you have general questions about workload of courses, or questions about course content in general, I can try to answer what I can. You've got me on Discord if you ever want to discuss.

What are your plans outside of school? Are you interning, working? Scribing, perhaps? Any plans on any of these?

Med schools like diversity, go for a degree like biology and just make sure you have all the prereqs. or do premed, idk

You should be able to get a 4.0 though homie, just don't party too much

Bruh everyone be doing Biology. But your degree doesn't matter for pre-med anyways. As long as you take your pre-reqs and keep ur gpa/extra curriculars in check your fine.

Talking about partying..... Last semester finals lol. Legit final week of the semester and I wasted my whole semester.
Told couple friends this semester that I'm not gonna party until after since its legit get a 4.0 this semester or bust.
