FALSE. Today’s Medical and Law schools are looking for students who have strong curricular and co-curricular portfolio.
According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, it is a misconception that students must major in a science discipline to get into medical school. Medical school do not have a required or even preferred majors necessary to be consider. What is important, is that students select a major that will motivate them to be successful during their undergraduate career.

The same goes for entrance into law school. The Association of American Law Schools states that law schools will not accept students with a bachelor’s degree in an unrelated field. Due to the intensive curriculum of law school, students may consider certain majors that can prepare them for the rigors of the reading and writing component. Those majors to consider are not limited to traditional “legal” majors, but rather include philosophy or even history.
