SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I submitted my application to 17 schools July 2 and am awaiting verification. I went to Stanford, which was on the quarter system, and took two quarters of General Chemistry, which has the same curriculum as a year of Gen Chem as non-quarter system schools. Pre-meds usually take a third class (Physical Chem) to round out that one year, but I didn't because, at the time, I was unsure about med school. When I went into my post-bac at SFSU, I didn't take Gen Chem 1 and Gen Chem 2 because I had already taken the equivalent curriculum plus, with the time freed up from those, I could focus on applying a year earlier (which I'm doing now). I also took AP Cal AB in High School and got a 5, took a quarter of Statistics at Stanford, and a semester of Calc 1 at SFSU. Long story short, I've read some varying things about how strict different schools are with classes, and what counts/what doesn't. My question is, will schools inform me of what I still need to take to be eligible, or will I not even make it past their filters (i.e., just be rejected without really knowing why?). I ask because I basically killed myself this last year getting a 4.0 in my post-bac while taking 50% more classes than everyone else WHILE studying for the MCAT in order to apply this year, and I'm honestly looking forward to not taking a lot of classes during my gap year, but I'll do what's needed. Just need to know if I need to be calling up all 17 schools individually or if they should let me know when the time comes. Thanks.
