There are many recommended classes. For example, my first choice, VCU website says Courses in general microbiology, bacteriology, animal or vertebrate physiology, anatomy, genetics and cell biology are strongly recommended. If time permits and the courses are available, courses in immunology, embryology or developmental biology and histology are highly recommended. Additionally, non-science courses in the behavioral sciences and those involving psychomotor skills are recommended. From the list, I have taken microbio, human phys(I don't know if that's animal physiology), genetics, cell bio, behavior science(economy I think). I am planning to take histology and sculpture(psychomotor) class this semester. I was wondering if recommended classes mean any? If there is a student who took one more recommended class than me, will they prefer him more than me?
