hey, I'll be majoring in either bio or psych at cornell..which btw, if you have any comments of either of these majors, please comment! However, I've also heard that pre-med is "impossible." How do you know if you can survive it or not? I don't want to end up transferring or something.. I'm also considering Carleton in Northfield and Wellesley since it has cross-regis. with MIT.

I have a friend at Cornell who is a pre-med in Arts and Sciences. She didn't give me the sense that pre-med was "suicide", but that it was VERY difficult. She was finding a lot of her pre-med classes were graded on a curve and she often found herself with grades a lot lower than she wanted. Cornell is tough, but it prepares you for medical school very well. Now that i remember, I heard a statistic that over the past five or so years, every valedictorian from the Harvard Medical School class went to Cornell for undergraduate. Getting a demanding education for undergrad prepares you immensely for graduate school.

I realize this this is a Cornell thread, not a Stanford thread, but I think the following link is illuminating. Pay special attention to Myths 10 and 11. Keep in mind that Stanford isn't exactly known for rough grading.
