Then your place will probably be offered to a lucky guy, waiting to get a spot in that school. They won't let you in, if you don't complete all the pre-requisites by the end of the spring session.

Chem lab doesn't sound too bad, especially since you know you're going to d-school anyway.

Nah, he/she just means that taking a chem lab won't be so bad if the OP already knows that he/she is in.

You don't have to finish it by spring, you just have to finish it before you enroll.

I don't think they care so long as you have enough of the pre-reqs done by the time that you apply.

i don't see why it wouldn't be ok cuz they have the Academic Update period where you can update classes your taking and plan to take.
