I am already a senior, and wasn't planning on going to medical school until recently (was accepted to law school). I have a few more courses to take, like public speaking, two more three hour bio courses, and another bio lab. However, since I decided to go to medical school, I need to take the MCAT, which I am in a course for right now, and taking the exam in April, so the courses I do this semester will overlap with the MCAT studying. I also need to take the three hour Organic Chem lab, and the four hour Human Biochem Lab. The Organic Chem Lab is offered every semester, including the summer. The Human Biochem lab is offered in the Fall and Spring. Up until today, I thought my schedule was set, however I found out my Human Biochem lab overlapped with my Immunology Lab. Immunology is only offered in the Spring, and I don't want to miss out on the chance to take it. I am going to take public speaking, biomedical physics 2, immunology lecture (three hours) and immunology lab (one hour). But I need to find another three hours to be full time at 13 hours. My choices are Vertebrate Phys (three hours bio course) (told it is hard, but I have yet to have a problem with the "hard" course) and it only meets two days a week for 1 hour. Human Bio Chem (four hours) which meets four days a week, for 1 hour each time. Organic Chemistry Lab (three hours) which meets for like 5 hours on Tuesday, then another hour on Tuesday, then another 4 hours on Thursday. Now given, I have the go ahead to just do another year, (5th year senior), so I can just graduate in the spring of 2010. Which should I take, Vert Phys, a class required to graduate, then Ochem in the summer and bio chem in the fall. Ochem then another bio class in the summer then bio chem in the fall. or Bio Chem, then O chem in the summer, then another bio class in the fall? Given, I am also studying for the MCATs, and plan on putting in a lot of time for it. Should I worry about completing the two medical school required courses as soon as possible or can I just wait till Summer and then Fall, given I will be eligible for graduation at the end of this spring.
