Most medical schools do require a bachelor’s degree in something (does NOT have to be biology) from an accredited 4 year university/college type place.
Here is a relevant post, hopefully you will find everything you ever wished for there.
In summary, your timeline is roughly:
- Go to college
- Take all required pre-reqs
- Have some fucking fun for the love of god. Make at least 2 bad choices per year that will not go on your permanent record, seriously harm yourself or anyone else, and you will laugh about later.
- Take the MCAT probably around the end of junior year, or after senior year if you are a super-senior like I was (no one cares)
- Apply to med school on year before you want to start (aka- apply summer 2014, start med school fall 2015). You should have taken/scheduled your MCAT by now
- Get accepted. Have a party.
- Graduate undergrad
- Have a fun summer. Seriously. Quit your job if you can. Sleep in all the time. Go on trips. Have mimosas at 9am on Wednesdays.
- Start med school. Embark on the most terrifying, horrible, and marvelous journey.
NOTE: It is ok to take a year off between graduating and starting med school. IT IS OK TO DO THAT. DO YOU HEAR ME.
