    How many hours are you guys taking during the spring semester? Does it really matter?


    I'm planning on taking only 7 hours, physics 2 lec+lab and another bs class, to meet the 90 hour requirement.

    I plan to take 16 hrs to get my BS (to fulfill min 120 hrs). I thought most of the schools like to see people with BS/BA. Or Houston doesn't require you to get a bachelor's degree. It it is, you're good to go.
    Good luck in d-school.

    It would probably depend on what you put down for the application? Like if you put down you'll finish your degree/take 16 hours for the spring you would probably have to contact the school cause you'd be changing something you told them you would do. If not, I dont think it should matter. You can probably give the school a call and see cause you're accepted already anyway.

    I finished college in June, Im taking zero hours. I dont think it makes a difference as long as you complete your B.S./Pre-reqs.

    I wish I could coast my last semester. I was supposed to be only taking 7 hours, but my school is not offering a class that they had planned on offering (a 2 hr class) and now I have to take a 4hr class to replace it! Totally not fair, so I will be taking 9 hrs all science classes :(

    My program requires 125 credits but I'll have 130. I'm taking microbiology (4 w/ lab) to satisfy Midwestern's requirements. Otherwise there is 2 dental prereqs, spanish II and instrumental analysis :( I'll be taking.

    Do you guys think it matters what BS degree we finish off with?

    On AADSAS I had planned to finish off Biochem/Biotech by the end of April but now I'm thinking of just graduating this semester with a General Science...

    Does it matter?

    Call NYU. I'd have to say biology is a little more impressive than general science...
