Need some advice or opinions

im thinking about getting a bachelors in physics and a minor in biomedical engineering at UC Irvine.

i want to end up in biomedical engineering as a career.

physics will give me better problem solving skills than engineering, and hopefully will not kill my GPA. i also like physics.

good idea?

i also plan on eventually attending graduate school in BME.

(the physics GRE scares me, you have to memorize all the equations)
Bad idea.

They both solve problems. In you want to end up in biomedical engineering,
get into [drum roll please] biomedical engineering for your major.
I would also agree that if you plan to go to grad school for biomedical engineering, you should major in it as well. It will make you more familiar with the field that you are going into. If you still want to do physics, perhaps minoring in that?
