Hi! I have a question about calculus on the new MCAT. With my AP credit, I am able to place out of Calculus I and II in my college, and will be placed in a stats class and not take calculus at all in college (I'm about to begin college as a freshman). Will I need calculus or calculus based physics for the new MCAT or in med school? Or do algebra based physics and stats cut it?

It won't be needed for the MCAT, algebraic physics and stats will work.

Although, Calc I is still a prereq at some/many schools I believe. I don't know much about AP credits, but I think some schools won't take AP. You might want to search for threads on the subject in pre-allo.
