And Max why do you hate chem lol.
FlyHi was a striking example, do you guys consider chem to be a class one could do well in even if they hate math or just have to work hard in math.
And I would hope that the first year upper level bio's in Pod school are not held to as high a standard as the next to years (In terms of landing residencies).
After learning the fundamentals of chemistry, I no longer found joy in extracting the nuances of our chemical world. It's probably because it doesn't and won't ever apply to my life, and so upon learning it, I feel that I have wasted time only to perform well on a test.
I honestly think everyone can do well in general chem, even if you hate or suck at math. Gen chem doesn't expose you to calculus or any hard math concept. Some algebra and some proportions. No trig work either, a lot of "plug and chug."
If you want upper level bio, enroll in the courses. Chemistry lends itself nicely to learn biochem. Other than genetics (and alas, human anat this fall), I won't have any bio class other than bio 1 and 2
