    Hello,

    Though there are various subjects you can choose to study in an undergraduate college, the first two years mostly cover general subjects. A junior year student (3rd year) must choose a ‘major’ field of study. They must take a certain number of courses in their field. In some schools, students also choose a "minor" field. There is usually time for students to choose several other "elective" (extra) courses in other subjects. It is at this stage when you need to talk to the assigned a ‘faculty advisor’, who teaches the major subjects, and also assists to select a particular program of study.

    If you are opting for Fall session, I would suggest you consider taking the subject test earlier since most of the schools for the undergraduate programs have their deadlines in December and can be as early as in November!

    Do get back to us for further guidelines.

    Good luck!

    Hello,

    Here is some information that could be useful for you and help you take your decision.

    As a pre-requisite for an entry in the medical school, you should consider programs referred as ‘pre-medical’ study. A 4 years Bachelors in Biology/science is required to apply for medicine. If you are strongly considering medical from the US, Applications should be made directly to the undergraduate colleges that customarily prepare students for medical school. You would however need to take SAT.

    As a counselor, I would suggest you contact the ‘The Association of American Medical College’ that lists the admission requirements of each schools and the statistics for the admission.

    The Association of American Medical College
    1 Dupont Circle,
    Washington, D.C. 20036

    Also, please note getting through the medical college is extremely competitive and hence think well before taking your decision.

    Do get back to us for further guidelines.

    Good luck!
