Okay, I see. So you have to choose a school that offers it as a major. And if you are already in school, and you decide you want to go to med school, then you will need to transfer to a school that offers that as a major.
So you can't get into med school with a different major, then?
Well, again, it depends on the prestige of the med school, and what discipline you want to go for. If you want to become a psychiatrist, you will have to do med school. They can get by without a pre med degree. Pre med is, again, a course load. It is heavy on the sciences and mathematics. Med schools will look at those with pre med degrees more seriously, but if you really can show you took all the required courses at the university you went to, Chem (VERY important) Bio (EXTREMELY important), Physics (not so important, but they want to see it) and some other classes like Calc (they want to see you can handle tough courses), Psychology, Sociology (not so much) then you shoudl be set. But again, your best bet is to take pre-med in the first place.
