    Pre-Medical
    Hey all, I'll be enrolling into a new university this fall for my post-bac, and I was gonna enter the courses into AMCAS, since I will be taking a few pre-reqs there, too. However, registration won't open till July, so while I know which courses I WANT to register in outside of the pre-reqs (of which I will only be taking 2, and the full courseload is 5 courses, which leaves 3), I don't know whether I can get into all of them since I'm not in any program per se. So, should I ONLY enter the pre-reqs I intend on taking? Or should I enter the other 3 courses I'd like to take, even though in reality I might end up taking different ones if things don't work out?
    Thanks.

    I was in a similar situation last year. List the courses you plan on taking as that is exactly what the section is for. You'll be taking a full load, so list out what your ideal schedule would be. Future classes are not binding and everyone in the admissions process knows that people change their minds.

    It's just good to give the schools an idea of what you will be doing with your time and if you still need to, that you will satisfy any remaining pre-reqs before matriculation.
