I am a freshman at a state university, trying to decide what exactly I am going to do with a Biomedical Engineering degree. Medical school seems far off considering their attempts to equalize their student demographics. I was wondering if dental school operated under the same manner, and if so, to what degree?
Have an Answer?
With a BIomed Engineering degree, you can get into the medical industry. There's a lot of well established and a lot of start-up companies in the medical device and pharmaceutical fields. So you actually have a lot of options with a this degree.
I also got my BS in Biomed Engineering. Worked as a process engineer for a medical device manufacturing company for two years, then went to dental school. I'm not too sure what you mean by med schools attempting to equalize their student demographics, but it's not something that should affect a single applicant by much. Remember, even though the number of applicants is large, the number of positions available for in both medical and dental school nationally is also large. Whether you decide to apply to medical or dental, your primary concern should be getting good grades, studying for the MCAT or DAT, volunteering, and having some research experience. To me, those are the things that increase the chances of you getting into a program the most.
