I am biased of course but I do think hard core science degrees ( mine is in biochemistry from the chem department too) are some of the most useful degrees out there regardles of what you choose to do, that's probably why they are the hardest to earn. It's almost like you are taught to think in entirely different way plus the level of analytical and math skills you develop in th process is mind blowing. Biochemistry/chemistry or molecular biology majors are to go majors for health professions and that's what I am doing. Bf ( he was my ochem 2 lab partner btw ) is finishing his masters in biochemistry with concentration in chemistry and just co-founded a biotech company last week. I'm so proud !
