    Just wondering, because I realized that I'll have to submit my AACOMAS primary application before my spring term ends.

    I will be able to finish my degree before matriculating fall 2010 and everything, and all prereqs except Organic II will be completed after spring 2009 semester ends (organic II over summer 09).

    How many credits will you guys have when you submit your primary (or if you already have, how many did you have)?

    As of right now it looks like I will have around 97-100 credits when I apply. I am planning to try and squeeze in eleven credits for summer which will probably put me at applying late July or early August. I just hope there's enough seats left for me. :scared: LOL

    I also will be finishing my degree in Spring of 2010 before matriculating in the Fall.

    240? Yikes! That's more than I'll ever have... : /

    I will have 76 credits after the spring 2009 semester ends, and will definitely be able to have everything done before matriculation. I'm just worried that low credit count=cause for concern...I have a fairly decent gpa for Touro NV, where I want to apply (about a 3.5, hopefully closer to a 3.6 after spring), some UD science credits already, etc. Will be taking MCAT sometime around May, already studying for it.

    Ah well, I'm going to the tour on Fri. so I guess I'll ask the admissions people then.

    Thanks for the responses (and keep em coming please!)

    Yep, there's one other but she doesn't come on much.

    I have to still take Chem 242 ( I think I am going to do that during the summer ..pray for me lol) Phys 151 and 152 (yea I'm going to brave the MCAT without these courses), Chem 474,475, and a couple more upper BIOL courses.

    I had to look this up on my AMCAS app... couldn't find it on my AACOMAS summary. Anyways, 280.7 undergrad:wow:, 21 graduate (certificate in public health). Obviously I lost track of how many credits I racked up... I thought it was around 200!

    It breaks down as 3 years undergrad, 2 years community college (my paramedic qualification), another 3 years of undergrad, not all full-time to make up for the earlier three years, plus a couple of postbacc classes.

    I think you'll be ok if you get a good physics review book. I'm braving the MCAT without Organic II (post-Organic I though), so hopefully it goes well for us : )

    Hey, if you take Organic II over the summer we'll probably be in the same class since I'm planning on taking it as well.

    ~120 or so. I applied when I was a 1st semester senior, but I transferred in AP credits and took classes over the summer each year.

    Hmm, so it turns out I think I was interpreting it wrong. The latest you can apply is April of the year you plan to matriculate (so would be April 2010). I was thinking I'd have to submit by April 2009 in order to start in Aug. 2010...

    On the website, it says June 1 of the year before you want to matriculate is when you should submit the primary. Which means I would have the credits from spring 2009 included so I think I'll be okay.

    Thanks for all the responses though!

    You guys amaze me with all your credits.
