Are you considering applying to pharmacy school but are concerned about job prospects when you graduate? Join us on Wednesday, July 28th at 8 PM Eastern to hear from three PharmDs about their experiences and options outside of retail pharmacy.
It's the individual school/professor that determines how easy a course is, not the the actual material covered.
If you want an easy A in a BCPM course, you can only count on the intro ones (bio/chem/physics I/precalc).
Adcoms are not stupid, they'll know you are padding up your GPA when you take classes such as "Algebra 1/2 for Athletes" or "Statistics for Business Majors"....
Moreover, it never looks good to take a lower level class for a subject if you already took an upper level one in that same subject.
Intro courses (chem, bio, etc.) at many schools are major weeders. The material may be easy to understand, but the tests, at least at my school, separate the men from the boys. Therefore, I wouldn't call chem or bio "easy A's."
Furthermore, upper-level sciences tend to be more interesting and fulfilling. Because you are more interested in the material, you are likely to do better.
Ask the upperclassmen at your school. I think it depends more on the instructor and their requirements than it does on the subject. If no one has any good suggestions at your school, look into taking statistics for life science majors. That was the easiest BCPM course I took in college. And stats is actually something useful to know about.
