Most schools don't seem to have a preference for which economics course they want fulfilled as a prerequisite, but one school I want to apply to wants microeconomics. Dumb question, but taking a general economics course wouldn't count right?

From what I've seen, a lot of schools specify either Micro or Macro... so if I were you, I'd take one of those. I would avoid the "general economics" course, as it sounds more basic and you risk not fulfilling the requirement in the school's eyes.

I would take micro. Many schools require that. Gen Econ won't fly unless a school specifically says general economics

Thank you both for responding! I also felt that perhaps taking microeconomics would be a better option, so I think I'm going to go ahead with this course instead of the general economics class. Take care! :)

The general economics course would probably be considered too basic to fulfill the prerequisite requirement.

I searched through the requirements of most pharmacy schools least year and almost all wanted micro or let you choose between micro or macro. Only a handful wanted macro and I seriously doubt they'd turn down a well-qualified applicant because they took micro over macro.

You are best off taking microeconomics.
