    Looks like a fairly typical pre med schedule. How hard it will be for your depends on your academic preparation and work ethic.

    NOTE: 2015 MCAT will require coursework in psychology and sociology. Consider choosing one of those for your elective.

    RE: English credit. You will want to check your transcript when you get to college to see how the course was recorded. Transfer credit---that's fine. Course equivalent credit--that will usually work also.
    Course credit without a specific course equivalent recorded---that's going to be an issue. It likely will not be acceptable to medical schools.

    Also please remember that many medical schools require 2 semesters of English or other "writing intensive" classes. (Writing intensive classes will vary by college. Consult your college catalog or pre-med office for a list of acceptable classes.)
