I want to go down the pre- med track, but I really don't want to spend 4 years studying biology or biochemistry. Can I major at business administration while taking pre-med classes at Duke university? Will it be too stressful?
Earn karma by helping others:
You do not have to study Bio or BioChem but I would stray too far away from subjects that have to do with being a doctor or running a hospital.
I think getting an MBA would serve you better as a 2nd graduate degree versus trying to get an undergrad degree in Business. So doing an MBA/MD at Harvard, Johns Hopkins, USC, UPenn, NYU is way more prestigious and carries more clout.

I heard Cornell doesn't accept international students who can't fund their education themselves. How true is this?
