Why would you be unable to get in even with a high gpa and a great application? Is that bc it's competitive to get in?
Yeah becoming a doctor takes a lot of time and commitment. I have a cousin who graduated from med school 3 years ago and he's doing his residency now
@Cherry234 Yeah, I agree with you, I wish the best for your cousin
@GoodGuyBreakingBad thank you
@Cherry234 You're welcome :)
Thanks For Most Helpful Guy :)

Thanks for the link. I'll show my cousin. His major is on the list
@Questioneiro check out the link above
Wow my cousin majored in mechanical engineering too. It took him a long time to finish and he just recently graduated from college
But I'd say nothing tops medical school.
Yeah I bet med school is even harder than law school
I'm told it's considerably harder
Yeah I imagine law school is really hard too. There's so much info thrown at you and the law is complex. But at least law students don't have to take difficult science classes like orgo (organic chem). My cousin said that class was really hard (or maybe he was talking about another class, don't remember) when he was a pre-med in college
Orgo is a prerequisite for med school. But med school is four vs three years for law school, and doctor's residencies are part of their education.My sister has a doctorate in Biochemistry as well as a medical degree. She said med school was exponentially harder.
Oh wow didn't know med school can be harder than a doctorate degree. My cousin was in a combined pre-med and med school program so he was supposed to be pre-med for 5 years I think and then go to med school for 2 years. But he ended up taking an extra yr in med school so he was in school for a total of 8 years
Law is abstract.Medicine/biology is pure science. Law school bass moot court.No such thing as moot surgery.
* Has moot court...
@FoghornLeghorn99: A residency is far more difficult than moot court
Law is essentially philosophy. Philosophy isn't harder than what used to be called "natural philosophy".
I am an ECE graduate
Not true you would learn basics that still true on new fancier computers and the math doesn't get old either. So unless we talk bus names, memory chip names etc it still useful knowledge.
Not true, math and logic won't change in 4 years. C, C++, Java, compiler design, continuously change but in increments - your old knowledge isn't useless.
@zagor the basic building blocks don't change, but the "cutting edge" tools become obsolete.
Yes but that is true when you work too. So you always need to keep learning.
another useless course ethics and philosophynot hard course comp science and engineering i've taken a few math courses and science courses in college and those were hard. the others i've listed as useless are useless and comp science and engineering i've had morons teach me that stuff who didn't know what the hell they were doing. i taught myself prior on how to code before going to all those useless computer science courses which didn't teach me a damn thing that i didn't already know. in fact i was doing 300 level and 400 level computer programming at a stupid 100 level course. and here's a secret about computer programming most of the source codes are already out there all they have to do is be modified a bit to your own adapting.
but if you were asking in terms of academic difficulty, then I wouldn't know, but then in that case it certainly wouldn't be the social sciences
One of my cousins majored in mechanical engineering and his brother majored in biomedical science. He's a doctor now. Their majors weren't easy at all. They had to struggle. There's more to studying a subject than just memorizing it. You have to understand it too
Especially if you plan on being a doctor or an engineer or even a lawyer
Right but whatever it is they just become a robot than cannot deviate from what they know if something else comes up. Like a doctor might know a thousand medicines to treat things but bring up anything natural and they are clueless. It is all information retention when it all comes down to it.
It depends on what you wish to choose as your major. Although I hated math all through grade, intermediate and high school, I chose Economics as my major the first Bachelor's Degree, with a minor in Marketing. Next, it was Mechanical Engineering.
Yeah I can imagine. My mom was pushing me to go to law school a couple times but I don't want to go
@Gwenhwyfar its true right? Pretty difficult?
@Still-alive yes. Especially the first year and the bar exam.
I know it's sooo hard. I dropped calc 2
It gets so much more painful after calc! lol!
Not really; you don't have to get your hands dirty like in Chemistry and Engineering.
Really? How about a math major or a different type of math? I took calc 2 but it was so hard that I dropped it
@Cherryh234 Calculus 2 is very easy if you understand it. If you can quickly recognize what method you should use (for example trig substitution), solving the problem is very easy. The only difficult one is integration by parts; not because it is difficult to understand but because it is such a lengthy solution.
@DWornock Yeah it becomes easier the more you practice. But it can be difficult at first. I guess you just have to look for patterns
Okay how about this: Which subjects do you find difficult to learn or understand?
I learn fast, I don't have issues.
I guess what's difficult depends on the person. But some of the really difficult majors are in stem fields like math, computer science, engineering, and chemistry. I thought I wanted to study math in college but I took calc 2 and then changed my mind
I studied math and computer science, nothing difficult for me.
Okay then they're your strengths
