Hello!

I'm an engineering major so I have limited space for extra biology classes (past bio 1&2 and biochemistry). I think I can fit one more biology class in prior to taking the MCAT, and was wondering which course would be the most beneficial. Right now I'm deciding between, Genetics, Microbiology, Physiology, Neurobiology, or Anatomy. At my school, I could take Cell Structure and Function after Genetics or I could take Immunology after Microbiology, so that's another factor.

Thank You!

Physiology by far.
Will help in physiology, pharmacology and Pathology in med school if you have a solid foundation

Have to agree with others. It also depends on what your school offers as physiology. If it is standard A&P, it might make more sense to do genetics. If they have a stand-alone physiology class then that would probably be perfect!

Either way, it can only help you!
