I'll first say that I've read through all of the related threads concerning pre-med required classes and applications. None of them explicitly discuss lacking a required class and applying via early decision programs. I am lacking a second semester of English and would like to avoid taking it in the coming Winter/Spring semester. I really despise English as a subject at my uni because of all of the grad student-instructors that create an insanely difficult situation out of an introductory-level class. So my preferred plan would be to take English in the summer semester. I would have my grade in that class by around 20 June 2009. The class is from May to mid-June. The problem is that the med school starts taking the early decision applications by the beginning of June. The web site for the med school states that all premed course work must be completed for the application. Among the list of required classes is English (2 semesters). Would it be a problem if I was in the process of completing English as I was submitting my application for early decision?
