Hello this is my first "real" post,

I was wondering if anyone knew by when Med Schools require you to finish your Upper Division biology requirements. I have already completed all the other general requirements, General Biology, Zoology, Gchem, Ochem, Physics, and Calculus. I am currently taking Biochemistry (bio98) and will finish Molecular biology (Bio 99) by spring quarter. As a result, the earliest I can finish upper division biology courses will be summer session.

I'm a Chemical Engineering Major so I've put off taking biology for a while. Can you just put IP, “In progress" on the AMCAS application and then perhaps send your transcripts when all requirements are complete? Should I just apply anyway?
