Is there a certain group of schools you were looking into specifically? In my signature is a link to the AACP's school admissions requirements guide. Look at that and you'll be able to see EXACTLY what subjects each school requires.

Aww, this is me 4 years ago with regard to English skills. Welcome to the forum : )
With your case in mind, I agree with above poster. You need to decide which exact schools you want to apply to. Ideal, in my opinion, the number would be around 4-6 schools. Then, you'd print out a list of prerequisites for all, sit down, compare. If there is a school on your list that requires more than 3-4 courses above what others need, drop that one and choose another. We were all in your shoes, the process is intimidating at first. But by taking small steps at a time, you'll reach your destination. Good luck!
