If I went to the UMTC liberal arts will I be set back for a medical program?
How do majors of a science school reflect their majors vs. a liberal arts school?
I got accepted into the Swenson College of Science at the UM Duluth. However, I want to go to UM Twin Cities because of its preciousness. Part of me thinks that if I do go to the liberals arts school, I will be set back because I was already accepted at the Swenson school. I'm a bit conflicted between choices at the moment. I was wondering if anyone has some good advice to guide me on the right path to a pre-medical program and later medical school.

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
I've seen this article posted in other similar questions and it seems relevant to you https://blog.collegevine.com/path-to-becoming-a-doctor-steps-to-take-from-high-school/. I think this one might be even more relevant: https://blog.collegevine.com/should-i-attend-a-liberal-arts-college-as-a-premed/.
Overall you should go wherever you think will make you happiest. Pre-med students can major in anything they want as long as they meet all the requirements. You might have more opportunities for research and related things at Swenson but going to UM Twin Cities should not set you back at all.
