I'm a freshman right now, and registering for fall quarter classes soon. I'm hoping to be able to fit in all of the classes I will need to have taken before the end of next year, in able to take the MCAT that following summer. I need to take i more quarter of bio, 2 of physics, and all three of of o-chem next year to finish each series. The only problem is that o-chem lab may not fit into my schedule (it's a seperate course from lecture, not sure if it's like that at other schools). Is the lab section of the course necessary for being able to take the MCAT? Also, what other classes are the most helpful for the test? Genetics? Physiology? Mollecular Cell Biology?
