Hello! These are a few questions that I have been wrestling with for a bit. If anyone has experience or insight, please do share! Would taking Survey of Calculus rather than Calculus 1 be sufficient for medical schools? Or should I take Calculus 1? Survey was a requirement for my major (I got an A). Additionally, my school only allows students to receive credit for either Survey or Calc 1. I got a C- for Genetics. Should I retake it (I'm considering in the summertime, possibly online, depending on my schedule)? Or is that unnecessary? This is also a lower-level course and I will be taking other (non-genetics) upper-level bio courses. What would med schools think if I retook Genetics after I applied (e.g. applying after junior year and retaking during my senior year). Should I notify them about my future course schedule? I've already taken survey of calc, but I want to take College Algebra now for my personal education. Will this negatively impact my medical school application in any way? I've read through several threads that discuss the in/significance of course level numbers (1000, 2000...etc...), and there has been no consensus. I am a bit concerned, however, because as an upper-classmen I am going to be taking numerous lower-level courses (sciences and non-sciences) because of how my school chose to number their course levels (which I disagree with because of the nature of difficulty of those courses). How might this appear to medical schools? I understand that it may depend on the individual who reads my application, but I would really appreciate experienced comments. Thanks a bunch.
