Yes, all you have to do is pass the class. Which is why some students hold off taking a certain class, that they know may cause them some trouble, until the Spring before pharmacy school.
You're right. I held off taking Calc II until the Spring before because I received a C+ in Calc I (so I was scared about what kind of grade I might pull in II). In the end I got an A in Calc II, so it worked against me in a way!Originally posted by kim31kim
O-Chem II was definitely the hardest of my prereqs... That and Physics. I never thought about holding those off until the last semester, but I can see where that might be a good idea. Though, if you take them and ace them before you see the admissions committee, that would be a definitely plus for you when they are making decisions.

Thanks for the info everyone. 1 more question- what do you think of Gen Chem 2 and Microbiology taken together in the same semester? Or Gen Chem 1 and Microbiology taken together?
