Would you consider taking stats or (even better) biostats? That's going to both definitely satisfy that requirement and open up more schools for you, as some schools specifically require statistics.

I can't definitively answer your question, my sense is that it probably would but it might have to be cleared school by school.

I am finishing a stats class next week. I will look more into biostats.

Not only that, bio stats and evidence-based medicine is all the rage in medical education right now. All three licensing exams have plenty of biostatistics and understanding biostats takes a decent amount of time and several passes of the material. The earlier you stink at it, the earlier you don't stink at it.

I checked many med school requirements. Most of them need stats. Any stats class should be good enough. It used to be 1 semester of calculus and 1 semester of stats couple of years ago. Looks like things have changed lately.
