After perusing the preregistration packet today, I was a bit disappointed to read that regardless of what score I get on the AP Chemistry exam, because I am on the pre-med track I will still have to take General Chemistry I and the lab. Is this typical of other schools too or no? I feel as if I put in all that effort for nothing (admittedly, IF the material in Gen Chem I is the same as AP Chem, the class may be easier, but having to spend the money and the time on repeating the material is frankly a little annoying). I think I'd feel better if this were due to med school requirements and not simply a curriculum decision made by Georgetown. Does anyone know?
I've also tried to find out about getting credit for IB Math Higher Level, but I haven't found the information. What class (if any) can you place out of and with what score on the IB exam?
