    You might be able to get away with only a semester of physics, but ochem is definitely required. I don't think anatomy is very important - you really just need the physiology.

    i'd say phys 2 = ochem 2 for the mcat. I took the mcat w/o ochem 2 and had to guess on about 6 questions.

    take the pre-reqs. you are shooting yourself in the foot by not giving yourself a chance to learn all the material first.

    I agree and disagree. I think you absolutely need physics 2. My mcat was prob more physics then gen chem, and literally all the physics was physics 2 stuff. There was almost no ochem on my test, only around five questions that were really basic and easy. And I agree about anatomy, I doubt it will help you at all. It did help on ONE question though, lol. There was a discrete question that was from anatomy but it was really easy and it's taught in any basic biology book.

      Take pre-reqs before MCAT.

      Think about it. If you did the pre-reqs first, you'd understand/already know most of the MCAT content. Thus your studying would be easier.

      If you don't do your pre-reqs first, you'll be teaching yourself the material as you study for the MCAT. Studying would be harder because you also have to teach yourself the material first. An extra step that may hinder your score.
