I’m a freshman in my first semester of college right now, and I am a little overwhelmed with understanding whether I’m taking the right classes. My academic advisor was not super helpful, so I had to kind of figure out my schedule by myself. For some context, I’m a pre-med neuroscience major with a decent amount of AP credits. I’m taking some core courses to get them out of the way, and I’m taking some major specific ones, like Chemistry, Psychology, and intro to neuroscience. My concern is that I’m not taking a math class this semester. I have AP credit from Calc BC, but I decided to wait until next semester to take math because my math credits from that class already complete my major requirements.
I wanted to know, is it ok if I’m not taking math every semester? I’ve heard different responses to this, and I don’t know what to believe. I’m not super worried about falling behind, because math is one of my stronger subjects and I’m good at reviewing. I’m more concerned if that’s going to cause problems for me in the future for when I’m applying to med school/taking other classes?
