Although I am not a "typical" nontrad (I am currently in my senior year of undergrad and plan on spending a fifth year here to take my premed requirements), I appreciate the advice those of you are giving. So, am I crazy for thinking that I can successfully complete all my premed requirements in one year? Those at formal post-bacs (i.e. Goucher, Bryn Mawr) do it all the time. I realize that it will be a struggle, but I am dedicated 100% to this and fortunately will not have to work (aside from volunteering as an EMT). My current schedule is: Summer: General Chem I, General Chem II Fall: Bio I, Orgo, I, Physics I Spring: Bio II, Orgo II, Physics II Summer: August MCAT Does this sound feasible? Alternatively, I could spread the classes out over two years (like some of you seem to suggest) and then only have to take two requirements a semester, but I'm not too keen on spending another year (in addition to the glide year I'm already expecting). My premed friends all tell me I'm in for the shock of my life, even though I have excelled in the social sciences. I'm a good student, but am wondering if I am being overconfident and/or crazy. Any thoughts would be appreciated!!
