I had to make the same choice some 4 years ago, and I choosed biology. I don't regret it. I think biology means so much more that chemistry(sorry, it's just my opinion :) ).
I think that, in time, you can find many fields of interest in biology that you haven't discovered yet.

I think chem and bio are linked...even if you chose one of them -for example bio-you study some chem stuff too :wink:

Just learn both of them....bio, chem and biochem.... :lol:
Oh yeah, I wanna ask, is there any university that offers dual degree in science?(just like economy, they offer dual degree for management and accounting). If yes, I'm thinking about taking it for bio and chem... :lol: am I able to???I think not.. :lol:

You can be double major biology-chemistry... However only a geek like me could pull off something like that

But, I've never heard about the double program like that...I think it could be faster if we join the double program rather than taking them one by one....

It would be really hard... But not impossible... You need to be a super geek to pull it off
