These are questions from the audience that we had time to answer during the live session. If you have any other questions, you can request an answer from Yesh and other CollegeVine experts in an upcoming livestream or on the Q&A Forum anytime.
3:00@mimi:can see the slide as well on google chrome but not on edge.
36:33@McKellarr:But what about feeling nonexistent pressure to be in medicine, knowing that it is competitive but it pays, and the kind of passion is writing, which doesn't pay as well. What would be a medicine creative writing combo?
39:24@rishirao:I am planning on doing medicine but interested in computer science also. What major should I chose to have a better chance to get in to med school
41:32@anonymous:Does my chance of getting accepted into a school decrease if I apply undeclared?
42:54@anonymous:I am applying to Cornell as an environmental studies major but I am having a hard time deciding what school I should apply to. Can you walk through the process of how to choose a school, especially when so many of them have the classes I am interested in?
45:21@anonymous:what is good path which includes medicine and business
47:35@anonymous:I heard from a medical school professor that med school admissions prefer it when students major in something other than pre-med. Do you think this is true and do you suggest that we take a major other than pre-med?
49:56@rishirao:It is not specific to the topic in discussion, but is there any personal college application assistance available through collegevine
51:44@McKellarr:Random question but is there a profile review coming up?
