    Does Revelle HUM sequence at UCSD count as English?

    I recently got accepted to UCSD's Revelle College. There is a 5-quarter GE sequence that is considered to be the college's writing requirement. Would medical schools acknowledge this as an English course? It's listed as HUM, but people from the school call it Writing.
