    I have a question to people who are applying or have applied to 10+ schools. How is it possible to fulfill all the course requirements for all the colleges. For example, i found out about BU's Social sciences requirement.
    • Social Sciences – 5 courses (20 credits).The committee strongly recommends that the applicant's college curriculum include courses in psychology, humanities, sociology or anthropology, and economics.

    My college's curriculum has only 15 credits of General Education (Social Sciences) Courses out of which 3 credits will be an English Course.
    So far i have:
    Philosophy-3
    Geog-3
    Economics-3
    History-3
    English-3
    And i dont have any space left in my senior year because of my engineering and other bio courses.

    UGGH what to do now??

    They are just recommendations, not requirements. If you show that you have a well-rounded education and many of their recommendations, you shouldn't fret. If that doesn't satisfy you, or them, then you should try a different school.

    My list is of only 12 schools including BU and Buffalo (with weird requirements). None of these requires AnP....and most of them do not either. AnP is a recommended course not a required at most of the colleges.
