I am a rising junior in high school and I want to pursue medicine. There are a bunch of majors for pre-med students however I am very confused which ones to take. Any suggestions?
Well. It depends. It doesn't matter too much, but if you want to know some statistics about this:
"The Association of American Medical Colleges reports that over half of all 2021-2022 medical school applicants majored in biology or biological sciences for their undergraduate degrees. Majoring in biology is one way to ensure you take the prerequisite science courses and labs required by many medical schools."
Essentially a biology major is the most popular. Other (not rare) majors include Nursing, Psychology, Neuroscience, Biochemistry, and Biomedical Engineering.
Hope this helps,
