English Requirement and Medical School?
Hi there! I am a freshman pre med student at UC Davis, and have a question regarding the English requirement at medical schools. I have a 4 on AP Lit and a 5 on AP Lang, which has given me "Pass" credit for ENL 003 and UWP 001, both writing intensive courses. I would like to focus on attaining a minor in Human Rights along with many major, so I am worried that taking a whole year of English will really put me off track. Is it necessary to take English when I have ap credit that transferred to my university? I was thinking of taking an upper division English class for one quarter to complete 3 total English classes, as well as continuing with human rights "writing element" classes? It seems that (according to https://oaa.rice.edu/sites/g/files/bxs1651/f/pdf/AP Credit - Allopathic Medical Schools (Updated Summer 2019).pdf) taking English isn't necessary in my case? Any advice is greatly appreciated, and I'm sorry for the long question!4 replies
