I'm struggling to figure out the math and chemistry prereqs, particularly for med schools in my home state of California since I know some of them don't accept AP credit. The language used on the schools' websites is often vague and confusing, so I wondered if you guys could share your application experience...
Math: I came in with AP Calc BC credit (5 on exam, got 8 units of math credit on my transcript). Would really prefer not to do more calculus if possible. Do I need to retake Calc II or take Multivariable, or would a statistics class be sufficient to fulfill the requirement? Also, does it matter whether the stats class is biostatistics or social science statistics (school doesn't offer "general" stats)?
Chemistry: I came in with AP Chem credit (again, 5 on the exam and 8 units on the transcript). I jumped right into Organic I and II and have been doing well. To fulfill the inorganic/general chem requirement, could I take an upper level class? As a chemistry/biochemistry major, I need to take Advanced Inorganic, Analytical, P-Chem, and Biochemistry II anyways-- would those count?
Thanks in advance for your help!
