Baccalaureate Diploma

Baccalaureate Diploma

A bachelor degree is essential for the majority of medical schools. Actually, there have been rumours that medical schools like candidates who aren't science majors, as it demonstrates variety in the applicant. On another rumour, English majors usually do well in medical school since they have spent the last 4 years reading a lot of information. Consequently, they have found ways to assimilate information more efficiently.
