Medical schools also consider standardized exam scores, communication skills, integrity, maturity and community involvement. Students should pursue activities which demonstrate these characteristics.
Most students finish their degrees at MSU before going to medical school, but students who gain early admission may transfer back specific courses upon completion of medical school to finish the MSU chemistry degree provided other graduation requirements have been met. Specific medical schools may have varying requirements and students should investigate their schools of choice early. Academic advisors work closely with students planning their sequence of courses for degrees.
