    If it's not the course that bio majors have to take, then you might have picked the wrong one. Definitely avoid anything for non-science majors since they cover a lot less material. Even if schools overlook it, you might have negative consequences when studying for the MCAT.

    I've already taken the MCAT, so does it matter?

    Most schools clearly outline that courses for non-science majors or for health career majors (Nursing, Pharmacy or Allied Health Sciences) ARE NOT ACCEPTED.

    I assume that's for prereq coursework. If you've already fulfilled your prereqs, it should be okay to take an allied health course as long as you don't expect it to count for your prereq coursework.
