Glad I was a psych minor.. I didn't even know you needed behavioral science for med school. Maybe it's good then that I have like a 3.6 in my minor :) Goes to show that lib arts classes...even science-based ones are cake compared to the premed curriculum here at PSU. There was a recent article about grade inflation at PSU and the only college that wasn't included in that assessment as having lots of inflation was the Eb. College of Science... not fair!
