Thank you for reading this! Your feedback will be greatly appreciated! I'm a psych major at a state university. I've taken all the basic sciences required for admission and have gotten into one medical school so far (still waiting to hear from four or so that I've interviewed at). I'm getting ready for graduation in the next few months. Basically what things have come down to is dividing time between my honors thesis (it's psych research), regular coursework which includes some higher level sciences that I thought would help me in med school, and my interests outside of school in general (mainly the arts such as music and theater). The thesis is getting done whether I like it or not. And I want to maintain as much an involvement in the arts as I can until I get to med school. So I'm forced to consider dropping one of my higher level sciences. The choices would be between mammalian physiology (though we're focusing on the human body) and biochemistry. I've already taken one semester of biochem and didn't like it that much (it seems to go into detail I won't remember in a year anyway) but I know the basics. I love physiology, really ties everything in together nicely and it's just interesting to me. Two questions for you: Which do you think was most useful for you overall as a med student? Do you think that the curriculum type at a school (ie traditional vs. PBL vs mixed) effects this in anyway? My number one choice of school right now is Pitt and it uses mixed, but the school I got accepted into, Temple, I think (though I might be wrong) uses traditional. and Since dropping a course will change my anticipated coursework on my AMCAS application, could a school possibly reject me because of this (even the one that has already accepted me)? Should I just update it and let schools know about this now as a warning? Would I need a written explanation of why I dropped it? etc Thank you so much for your time!
