    SCOTUS decision hypothetical

    Since the Supreme Court will likely rule in favor striking down race based admissions, how would med schools be able to use diversity essays?

    Should I take 1 quarter or 2 quarters of biochemistry?

    My school (UG) offers a 1 quarter biochem course which isn't as hard as the 2 quarter series biochem. I'm not confident in my ability to get an A in the series offering. The thing is, some dental schools ask for just 4 credits (1 quarter), while some ask for "Half-year". I don't know if 1...

    For a while, I wanted to go to med school or PA school, but over the past year, I decided it wasn't for me.

    Does it look bad to send both a letter of interest and letter of intent to the same school?

    So my story is like this. School A interviews me and offers me a position on the waitlist in October 2021, I graciously accept and shortly after send them a letter of interest. Time passes by and I hear back from other schools. At this time, School A is my first choice and I want to let them...
