    OK Guys,

    Remember me asking you guys if I should take cell bio or micro? Well, I found out today that the INtro. cell bio class is for non-science majors, which of course I am a non-science major but that means it wont cover as much material as a cell bio for a science major. Now, here are my other options: Should I take that cell bio class even though its not for a science major? or should I take Micro or the Human Physiology? These last two are for science majors, so they indeed will cover all of the material in depth. What do you guys think? for MCAT since I am a non science major; micro or human physio? Also, which of these 2 carries more work? :rolleyes:

    I recommend the cell bio. When I took the MCAT I don't recall that much micro on it.

    I would take human physiology. This helped me out on the MCAT. This is one of the classes that I was happiest in.

    i think the ONLY two classes that actually helped me on my MCAT were Cell Bio and Physiology... so I would recommend it personally.

    I agree with everyone else. I don't recall much micro on the MCATs, maybe 1 or 2 questions.

    I definitely recommend physiology. My favorite class ever. <img border="0" alt="[Lovey]" title="" src="graemlins/lovey.gif" />

    i took the mcat w/o any cell bio under my belt. so i don't think it'll help too much.

    OK, I am so confused. In my school, the core biology classes for premeds are Cell Biology first semester and Genetics second semester. If we take one of those "Bio for non-science majors" classes, those are a joke and I always thought med schools would know that. Usually non-science majors just take them b/c a science class is required to graduate. And does this intro cell bio class that you plan to take even have a lab?

    I realize that cell bio is more useful than micro for the mcat, but I think he should take the core science class. In my school it was a weed out course. You don't want adcoms to think you took the easy way out here. But I really just don't know your situation or how your school does things.

    I think I'm just confused. :confused:

    In any case, I recommend human physiology. I never took it, but all my mcater friends did since they're bio majors and it seemed to help them a lot. They had to teach me everything. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

    Hi, Dr.foxy the Cell bio class doesnt have a lab. Its a class for non-science majors, just a requisite they need to do to graduate. So ya, its seems to be an easy class. I think I ll just go with human physio.

    Eduardo

    P.S. Thanks for your help :)

    have you taken your bio course with lab yet? make sure you take one, since all schools require lab!
