From what I've heard from current students, Calculus 1 (and math in general) kills a lot of GPAs, and I have a 5 in Calculus AB that I could use in lieu of taking the class to fulfill the med school prereq. My intended major does not require any math past Cal 1 so hypothetically I could just take Statistics and no other math classes in undergraduate. However, I'm worried about taking calculus-based physics (probably in my junior year) with no calculus since high school. Does anyone have any advice on how much calculus is needed for physics and/or the MCAT? I'm also wondering if med schools will look unfavorably upon me for using AP credit instead of taking math classes. I don't want to make a mistake with my freshman schedule that comes back to bite me later.
