I'm trying to help my little brother register for his classes because it's his first semester in college. He also has dreams of becoming a physician. I wanted to register him for either the Gen Bio or Gen Chem course. I don't want to overload him his first semester. The thing is at his school (which is in Florida he's going to a CC and then transfering to my undergrad) to register for Gen Chem you have to take an Intro to Chem course and to register for Gen Bio you have to do the same. Is there anyway to get around this? I'm asking because I didn't have to do that. Granted I didn't start school in Florida, we moved down here last year. At my previous undergrad you go straight to Gen Chem and Gen Bio. So is it common for schools to request that you take an Intro to Chem and Intro to Bio course before taking BIO I and CHEM I. I just find this strange because now I'm wondering how the students who live in Florida manage to apply to Med School in time seeing that they have an extra year of sciences that they need take. Thanks in advance.
