Interestingly, at the local university in the ninties, the cutting edge students whom intended to apply for medical school were getting their two required years of sciences, then finishing with liberal arts degrees - at that time, the people on the admittance (to med school) committees were looking for people with "the human touch", for lack of a better term. The guy who blew his whole class out of the water in the sciences got a bachelors in English literature.

(There used to be a 4-year degree program called "pre-med",
but it went the way of the dinosaurs.  By that time, all pre-med students had to get "real"  bachelors degrees before applying to med school.  With the two years basic sciences as electives, if nothing else!)
