Do you guys think taking Physics 1, Anatomy 1, and Bio 2 over the summer is a lot since it is a shorter term?
I'm taking both Physics I and II (both with labs) this summer. Physics I goes from May 17 - June 30ish (lecture from 9-noon, lab from 12:30-3 - Mondays and Wednesdays), and then Physics II begins the following week until August 11 (same hours and days). Talk about cramming it in!PharmDr. said:Do you guys think taking Physics 1, Anatomy 1, and Bio 2 over the summer is a lot since it is a shorter term?
I remember when we had a few students complain about their O-chem grades and our professor actually had the nerve to say "Quit your job, drop your other classes, and get a divorce because Organic chemistry should be your number one priority". Give me a flippin break! I think a lot of O-chem profs are full of themselves and the course they teach.pharmtech77 said:How about taking Orgo Chem II (3 cr. Lecture) and a 4 cr. Orgo lab during the summer? My univ. combines the 1st sem ochem lab material with the 2nd sem ochem lab to make for one macho lab. The term lasts 2 months. From reading what some of you plan to take or have taken over the summer, my plan sounds semi-doable. I don't plan to be employed this summer... 7 credits of ochem will be my life. Also, I need to get a "B" or higher in those courses. My current ochem prof said he HIGHLY DISAPPROVES of someone taking both ochem2 and the big lab during the summer.

It was the worst decision I ever made, and ended up dropping it before the final exam. It was the profs first time teaching OChem, and the section was full of pharmacy kids blasting the curve away, trying to boost stats for admissions. I hate those bastards. (Then I became one... )
I have already asked around, and I have heard of people taking both lecture and lab during the summer. They didn't work or anything either...which is my plan as well...and I guess they turned out fine. I just wonder how much of geniouses they were...hmmm lol.AmandaRxs said:I would ask around at your school and see if anyone else has taken ochem2 and the lab for summer semester. It sounds like you should be able to do it to me, however maybe your professor is right...it might be a pain in the ass. But really if that's all you have to do (no job, no other classes) I'm pretty sure it won't be that tough.
I'm in Minneapolis. If I get my conditional acceptance revoked from a different pharm school this year, I will apply to both Mpls and Duluth campuses for next year. I would prefer Mpls though, partially because it's closer to home. Did you apply to the UMD campus (how is the COP there?)?? Have you heard anything yet? A girl in my micro lab said people are starting to get letters, but some may not hear until May 15th or so. She's pretty upset that they don't send all the letters at once! Does the UofMN COP have the conditional acceptance "B or better" requirement?UMDeeMan said:hey minnesota pre-pharms....which campus are you all l at? and did you apply to UMD's new pharm school?
