How feasible is it to take the MCAT with only one semester of Orgo?
I think you could get by pretty well with only one semester of organic. The organic section focuses on a lot of concepts, rather than individual reactions, and you learn the majority of these concepts during the first semester. However, I would definitely recommend studying or at least reading about some major second semester reactions/concepts. These include the properties of aromatic compounds, reactions of aldehydes and ketones, aldol condensation reactions, electrophilic addition reactions, and NMR/IR/Mass spectroscopy. These were the major topics covered in my second semester of organic, and many showed up on my MCAT.
I'd say it's kind of a toss up. Most of the advice I got, was that it would be no big deal. Unfortunately, I got hammered with a ton of Orgo II. Luck of the draw, I suppose. Yet, if I had to do it again, I would.
PSI....I was just curious about your name. Does it stand for the 1 ATM=14.67 lbs/ sq in. If I remember correctly, that is right.
