I am currently finishing my 4th year at my research University. I am in the process of applying to post-bac programs and realized most of the academic enhancer programs require that all the necessary pre reqs be completed prior to applying. Having been seeking a different health career before, I only completed a brief organic chemistry course for 2 quarters, only one of which had a lab portion.

Can the one quarter of brief - orgo with lab fulfill part of the pre req requirement? Would it be wise to take the other 2 quarters of orgo during the summer after submitting an application?

Is the best option to take these course at an open campus school before applying to a structured post bac program?
