Changing majors and college at Berkeley?

I am a incoming Berkeley freshman majoring in Microbial Biology at CNR (College of Natural Resource). But i want to change my major to Neuroscience at L&S (Letters and Science College). Is it a good idea to change my major? I am going for a pre-med course.

CNR is said to be the most flexible, better for small-learning, and convienent for pre-med pre-reqs. L&S is said to have more req than CNR, more competitive, and a larger learning community (student to teacher ratio is bigger than ratio of CNR). I am confused….what should i do ….any advice? Is transferring to CNR to L&S easier? HElp please!?!?!?!?

If you want to go to medical school, you should stop thinking about which path is easiest and start thinking about which patch will prepare you for medical school the best. I doubt that CNR will give you the best preparation — and I (for one) don’t want a doctor who is ill prepared.

Stay in your current major. Look at how many people are in MCB then calculate that only 15% those people are allowed A’s. You probably have a better chance at keeping up your GPA in CNR. In the meantime, study hard.
