I was wondering which of these upper division bio class should I take? Can you rank them based on which dental admissions would like to see more:

General Microbiology
Human Anatomy
Human physiology

Which of these would be most useful in dental school?

Of those 4, I have only taken anatomy and physiology (combined into one course). That being said, I imagine any of these courses would be extremely helpful for dental school. I have heard from students from 2 dental schools in my state that micro was thei hardest course so maybe that would be to your advantage to take it now and be prepped for it before dental school. Either way, I don't think you could go wrong with any of the 4.
