    These two are the electives I need to take for my major. Which one is more helpful in term of preparing me for courses in dental school?

    Probably genetics. When you say development bio, you mean Embryo?

    Take genetics. I think it will be a little more helpful for school. Also it will probably be a for sure A. Developmental bio was way more challenging in my opinion. At leat at my school with my professor.

    Have you taken your DAT yet?

    Fruit fly development is useless for D-School. Is that what you mean? I'm confused by your wording

    Genetics is a core requirement for bio majors at my school. Developmental bio can only be taken after A&P 1 and 2. So, I'd say genetics.
