I’m thinking I want to go to med school after my undergrad, but I also want to use AP credit to skip a semester or maybe a full year. These credits include Biology, Physics, History (credit from Euro), Chemistry, Calculus AB, and English (which generally I think could allow me to skip a semester). This does not take into account credit I could get my senior year of high school, including a foreign language.
I have seen on some med school websites, however, that they would like students to replace the courses for which they used AP credit with a higher-level class of its subject. It seems a bit counter-intuitive for me to have taken AP tests without really being able to cut down on college costs.
At this point might a Master’s degree be better? I don’t think adding classes to replace AP credit for a Bachelor’s to make a 4 year degree would be better than using AP credit to potentially have a 5 year Master’s.
I’m thinking of majoring in biology/biochem.
Thank you in advance!
