Applying with a major
Originally, I thought I wanted to major in psychology but now I'm leaning towards pre-med (so maybe a major in biology instead). But, I'm already a junior and had a few extracurriculars in psychology (nothing major/ no awards or anything) and I don't know how much time I have left to do something in biology. Would it be more beneficial for me to apply as a psych major? Would that increase my chances of getting into a school (since I already have that background) or does it really not matter?

Hello! You can always do pre-med as a psychology major, if that interests you. If you really want to go into biology, here are some quick ec's.
1. Start a bio club
2. Do some independent bio research
3. Join a Science Olympiad or Science Team group
4. Intern at a bio lab
hope this helped!
