    If you still have to take all of your science classes, and two math classes (Calc 1, statistics?), then it will take you another two years at least.

    I would not take the PCAT until after you have taken bio and chem, so next summer at the earliest. You will need to self study organic chemistry most likely.

    I was accepted into UT Austin (I chose a different school though) and they are definitely more selective than some people think. Considering your major, I think they'd really like to see more math and sciences courses especially the basic foundation ones.

    smh i think you should do your major classes first and then worry about electives.
    I mean major classes as biology, chemistry, math and physics.
