    Hey all,

    I asked this question on the pre-med board, but it seems more appropriate here.

    I am trying to gauge how many people took the necessary math for application to medical school.

    Almost 60% of medical schools do NOT require any math. Do you believe that to truly be the case?

    What's all this uproar about math these days?? I only took calculus and that satisfied my college's requirement. I couldn't imagine a medical school requiring more than that. Especially since you get to use a calculator for any remote math you do.

    I tested out of math at my university and never took any in college and I am the better man for it. I use no higher level math as a physician. The most you get might be algebra. Primarily Medicine is not a math based profession.
