Is calculus or calculus-based physics required as a prerequisite to med schools? If not what is the highest level of math?

I am actually in calculus right now lol
I believe most med schools require calc, but you can take trig based physics instead of calc based physics.

Some schools do require calculus, but I'm not sure that it's even the majority. Many require some stats. Physics can be algebra based everywhere I've ever seen.

Its something like less than 20% of the med schools requre calc..

I am applying to 15 schools and none of them require it, and only half require any math at all (which my stats courses suffice for their requirements)
