    ...for their undergrad. (sorry, it wouldnt all fit in the thread title)

    Did any of you run into complications with the chem requirements for most US dental schools? the chem 121-123-233-235-205 thing is really making me paranoid that I won't even be able to apply to a lot of the schools I want to, and it really doesnt seem fair.

    What did you guys do? I've requested a letter from the Faculty of Science stating that those courses cover the basic undergrad chem requirements...but should I submit that to AADSAS? or send it to the schools that I wish to apply to? Time's a tickin and I wanna get this sorted out ASAP.

    Cheers

      you wont run to any problem regarding your chem courses. just go to science advising they have the letter ready, just take that letter and fax it to all schools you are applying. but you need to do this after they received your file from AADSAS. so for now dont worry about it..just apply as soon as you can after avery thing is sent to your designated school from AADSAS(you will be notified by AADSAS) then fax the letter to schools.sooo chill for now man.

      now i have question for you...do you know anyy collage that offer Physics through distance ed.. i have to take phys 102 but ubc offers it end of summer and its very late for me?

        OK here's the rundown of the courses. the number of credits or hours or whatever you wanna call them are in brackets... 121 and 123 both have labs, 205 does not. So as you can see, I only end up with 15 credits, not 16, since UBC combines a bit of physical chem in w/organic in chem123. I emailed BU, Tufts and USC and got useless/disheartening/no replies from all of them.
        It would be much more simple if UBC had Physical chem each w/labs for 100 level courses, and the same thing for org chem for 200 level courses.

        CHEM 121 (4) Structural Chemistry, with Application to Chemistry of the ElementsFundamentals of structural chemistry; descriptive chemistry of main-group elements, with industrial and environmental applications.

        CHEM 123 (4) Physical and Organic ChemistryPrinciples of equilibrium and chemical thermodynamics. Introductory organic chemistry: stereochemistry; substitution, elimination and oxidation-reduction reactions.

        CHEM 205 (3) Physical ChemistryChemical kinetics and thermodynamics and spectroscopy useful in biological, medical, agricultural, earth, and related sciences. Not for credit in Chemistry and Biochemistry programs.

        CHEM 233 (3)
        Organic Chemistry for the Biological SciencesReactions and properties of carbonyl compounds, carbohydrates, amino acids, nucleic acids. Not for credit in Chemistry and Biochemistry programs.

        CHEM 235 (1) Organic Chemistry LaboratoryTechniques of organic chemistry. To be taken in conjunction with, or in the term following, CHEM 233.
