    yeah i can finish, its just ill be applying with 78, i could probably get the degree at by winter of the year before matr. If i put my head to it, but will they even consider my application with 78 credits? *Edit*: So 90 is required by the med school, what if I redeem my fall semester in summer 2009, will that be okay or am i hopeless and i have to wait another year?

    you're good.

    most will say that a min of 90 is req, but if you don't have a bacc, you're gonna get looked at weird. the exception being the short programmes.

    I would call and talk to specific schools that I was interested in.

    I am not sure when the 90hrs starts. I think it is 90hrs at matriculation.

    Some schools will let in some students that are exceptional without a BA/BS as long as they have 90hrs.

    Why guess? Just call the school or schools...

    well if you just said u can get ur degree before matriculating then you have no reason to be worried....that 90hr min is talking about how much ull have right before matriculating
