thinking of taking 20 hours over the summer. i would like to get physics out of the way, but only non calc based physics is offered over the summer. do i need the calc for the mcat? do med schools care much about that for a cell/molecular and biochem double major? thanks

My physics was noncalc based.

You won't need calc based physics for the MCAT either.

Ditto, I did really well on the MCAT physics and only took non-calc. I took all of it at a junior college over the summer, so I broke a few pre-med commandments there.

hmmm... how do med schools view taking upper level (not exactly for your major though) classes at a lesser institution? i was thinking possibly taking an advanced spanish class and calc III at my local public university. would that matter?

At our school we needed calc-based physics for a biochem major. However, it's not required for your major, algebra-based is easier and is definitely sufficient for the MCAT.
