I took AP Physics C in high school, and got a 5. I took the credit and skipped college mechanics and went right to E&M. I did this because I was a physics major, and I assumed that I would be taking higher-level physics classes after E&M, thereby fulfilling my 1 year physics requirement for medical school.
Well, it took about 2 weeks of E&M to realize that physics was not for me. So I've switched majors. At this point, do I need to take another semester of physics to fulfill the requirement? Or, because I took E&M, which is technically a higher level class, is my AP credit for mechanics acceptable, assuming that I obviously have to be comfortable with mechanics to do E&M?
My advisor contacted a dean at Case Med (I go to Case Western for undergrad), and he said that I would not have to take another semester. But I'm just afraid that because I didn't communicate with him directly, he might have misunderstood the situation, or maybe other med schools feel differently about this situation? Would it be weird if I emailed some med school admissions deans and asked them this?
