I’m currently an upcoming junior biology major registering for classes at the moment and I came across the choice of registering for College Physics or University Physics. University Physics is considered more rigorous and according to my friends’ advisors, they recommend University Physics to get accepted into schools like the Grafton School at Tufts.
However, it requires one of several given math classes and one math class I’ve already taken is not included but fulfills my math requirement already. College Physics does not require this and I am eligible to register for that. This would mean that if I were to take University Physics I, then I would take an additional math class that does not serve any purpose except to let me take University Physics.
This is based off the idea that I’ve been told that college physics may not be enough and university physics should be taken to increase my chances of getting into vet school.
Is it worth spending the extra money and time on a prerequisite only useful for taking another class and adding an extra set of credits to take University Physics I to boost my application in vet school or is it worth just taking College Physics I?
In essence, could a vet school like say, Tufts, make or break my application based on if I register for University or College Physics assuming I keep everything else stable? Vet school seems to be harder to get into, and I don’t necessarily know what they tend to weigh more of in my future application.
