Academic Experience: Being a Pre-Med major is a bit difficult in my opinion. I believe that is is easy beacuse it's very vast, however when you finally do narrow your decision, the years of learning drastically changes. Most medical students plan on 6 years or more and need to be extremely focused. The worst part is if you can't meet a certain goal and you're left with just pre-med which is difficult to find a job that way that will pay well and make you happy. You're either going to go to school for a long time and do something you're extremely passionate about or you will be stuck with pre-med where in order to find a job you can take the pre-med and continue getting programs or certificates in order to work somewhere.

Academic Experience: It's great because I could do many other things with my career choice.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The teachers care but they won't push you to always

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Each music teacher is helpful and good at engaging you in learning. Within the music department I have formed a family of sorts and each person I have met has been friendly and inviting to me. Learning music has been hard but has been so much more fun than the fine arts.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm a Physics/Electrical Eng. dual major though I intend to go to med school for graduate school. I have not done much on the engineering side of things yet.

Physics on the other hand is fun. It isn't as hard as it would be at a university but, due to the small class sizes, we usually have extra time to talk amongst ourselves and with the teacher leading to many interesting conversations about concepts well beyond the class level (wormholes, black holes, bending space-time, etc.) but this is limited to class involvement. Many physics majors are quiet and prefer to just take notes on the subject at hand. There were a few of those and they are probably not as enthusiastic. If you are an aggressive learner I would take these over University courses.

On the pre-med side I have taken some chemistry, which I felt was entirely repetitive from high school, and an EMT training course which was amazing though, not having experienced any similar courses, I do not know how I would rate it compared to them. It is very disorganized but they teach mostly through action. They'll spend some time teaching the skills and knowledge but then you quickly end up having to apply them on the spot when someone rushes into the room yelling "SAVE MY BABY!" and throwing a baby manikin at the nearest person. The best part was "stage drill" which I won't spoil in a review as the best part was the surprise. Take the class if you want to know.
