Question by Sda Asdgasg: I want to do a neuroscience major and was wondering how difficult it would be?
I want to do this for pre med and have been researching it a lot and found out it is a liberal arts major, which tend to be easier to have higher gpas in. Is this true for neuroscience, would it be easier to get a high gpa in than say biology?

Not necessarily, if you tend to be a science whiz then go for it. A lot of students struggle with upper-level science courses since that’s what you ultimately will be taking.
If that major really interests you go for it, don’t get involved with a science major just because of med school, then when you get to the interview you’ll have no real reason why you majored in the field. Most med applicants tend to get a science major which makes them a very typical applicant. Med schools want people that are unique and well-rounded.
But I’m not saying don’t do it, if you like it and it interests you, go for it. Also, all the upper-level science courses you will be taking to get that major is actually good for you, and med schools recognize that. Also, med schools know what are the “easy” and “hard” majors. So if you just doing it for easiness, i recommend don’t do it. Neuroscience doesn’t sound like a way to get a high easy GPA.
I’m a premed student majoring in psychology because i find it very interesting.
