What are good majors and minors for pre-med outside of biological sciences?
What are good majors and minors for pre-med outside of biological sciences? Besides Biology or Biochemistry, I was thinking about majoring in Mathematics with Applied Medical Science (only offered at UCLA from what I have seen) or just Mathematics in general. My interest in English is also something I would like to pursue while in undergrad as well, so I may minor in English. Is this good? Please feel free to drop some other ideas.

It's actually great if you have a non-STEM major or minor, as that helps you stand out (more details in that post).
Also, @Mckellar, really appreciate your answer, but I had to delete it since it was too significant a portion of another website's article. We don't want to get hit for copyright claims or anything. In the future, feel free to link to the article :)
