My daughter is currently interested in pursuing a course of study that will allow her to have the necessary prerequisites to apply to medical school. The course of study/major does not have to be biology or chemistry. I am hoping that some schools have a template that threads the needle on getting all the required courses done while not necessarily pursuing a science degree.

You can get a pretty good idea but looking at the current rosters and seeing what the players majors are. I know one young woman who chose to go to Tufts (D3) because she wanted to go to med school and didn't feel she could do that at a D1.
