Ok, this may be a dumb question but I'll ask it anyways. I go to the U of Michigan and we have an odd chemistry setup. Most students place out of intro chem and go right into orgo. You get two labs with the organic chem semesters (3 credits of lab total) but the 4th semester class (p. chem) has no lab, so you end up with no inorganic labs whatsoever. My advisor has told me to take the intro inorganic lab for no credit (since I placed out of it the first time and already have taken the organic one), just to get a third one, but to get a forth lab I would have to end up taking another upper level chemistry course. I was just wondering if any of you felt that it was absolutely critical to have those numbers, considering how it is set up at Michigan.
