hey guys. I was wondering how important the 'recommended', but not required classes are (biochem, microbiology, anatomy, genetics, etc.). I've already completed the pre-reqs with a 3.49 and wondering if i should take these classes and apply later rather than sooner.... Also, im not able to take biochem until the fall semester of my senior year. This means that if i want the biochem grade to count, i would have to apply to pod schools around january. Is this a bad time to apply? Would it be advisable to just apply before january and not submit the biochem grade?
