Suggested major: Any major is acceptable, Biology or Chemistry are popular

Medicine is a diverse profession, requiring both technical and interpersonal skills. Medical schools encourage applications not only from biology and chemistry majors but also from students in the social sciences and the humanities. Medical schools even urge science majors not to over specialize in science but to get a broad, liberal arts education thus developing the skills of intellectual inquiry and critical thinking that are essential for successful performance in medical school.

The ability to communicate well is becoming increasingly important to medical school admissions, and essay writing is now a significant factor in one's MCAT scores. Students are therefore strongly advised to take science, interdisciplinary courses, seminars, literature, and other courses that involve writing formal papers and speaking in class.
