Pre-meds: Stay on top of changing requirements!

Change in coming to the pre-med world. With the onset of MCAT 2015, universities are considering changing science major general education requirements. This is because the MCAT 2015 has added a new section emphasizing social sciences (psychology, sociology, etc), statistics, and research methods. Georgetown, for example, is already talking about a possible change in this The Hoya article.

Though I fully support these changes and a focus on the "softer" side of science, these changes will require pre-meds to stay on top of their school requirements and possibly add new classes. Be sure to pay attention as your school discusses such changes. I even suggest getting involved in the discussion. As a pre-med, your voice should be heard!
