    Is it fine to just take 6 credits last semester of university? I just need 6 credits to reach 120 for graduation because I already finished major's requirements. And is it fine if one of the classes is like basketweaving101

    I'd imagine that your senior semester wont really make a difference if you have all the pre-reqs for med school and completed everything necessary for your degree. However, be careful with 6 cr because if you are receiving financial aid, there may be a minimum number of credits required. If you don't meet that minimum, you may be forfeiting your aid without even realizing it. Def look into that first.

    If you’re paying to be a full time student, might as well take something that sounds interesting or intellectually stimulating. As long as you have pre-reqs done, it won’t matter. My recommendation: it never hurts to learn a foreign language ;)

    The way I did my undergrad, I ended up in a similar situation. Took a weight lifting class which actually was quite helpful and still use those principles today. Not that I'm a power lifter or anything like that, but just solid fundamentals that I take with me to the gym. I also took...wait for it...yacht racing. Yeah that's right. Needed another 3 credits to burn and decided to learn how to sail one of those little JYs. Lots of fun. Capsized a bunch of times. But a very enjoyable way to finish out my college career. None of this ever came up when I was interviewing for med school. Cheers.
