    Last Minute Career Switch AUA PRE MED a good option?

    Advertisements



    I am graduating with a BA in Philosophy from NYC with a 3.4 GPA. Previous goal was law school (my major made me question my own morals as a lawyer)
    This last semester I took Bio 101 with lab and got an A. I still plan on taking my LSAT but don't want to put all my eggs in one basket. Is AUA pre med a good option? I do not want to finish pre med here since I want to be challenged and experience the island and the lifestyle before my medical career path is set and done. Any thoughts and suggestions? I am trying to get in for the Jan. 2016 program. (graduate in December 2015)

    How about doing the Pre-med courses at City or Hunter or Queens College in NY and then taking the MCATs and try for a US MD/DO school?

    Financial situation is very limited. AUA fits the budget and seems like a good deal

    I see. While I wasn't in the premed program, I know several of my friends who were. I think the premed program really helped for the majority of classes, but they were pretty solid in anatomy, physio, micro/immuno, so yes, the program does help you prepare for medical school. Maybe someone in the program currently can chime a word or two about it. If you end up doing the program, give your best, and study hard, and I am sure when you start the medical program, you will have an advantage over the students from day 1. All the best!!
