Pre-Medical, Pre-Pharmacy
I am a biochemistry major, soon to transfer to a university in spring 2016. I am transferring from a community college, having said, I am a bit worried about my course load for the spring 2016 semester.
I was thinking Organic Chem 1 with Bio- ecology & evolution along with physics 1.
I feel like I can handle it because I will not be working. However, I have been told that at a university this is pretty much the standard schedule for science majors. I want to get myself accustomed to taking at least two science courses. I know some people may think its too much but then again in medical school, you have to be on your tippy toes and ready for anything that is thrown at you....:eek::eek::eek::eek:

It's definitely doable, and you should know your own abilities and study habits by now to make it work

In many cases the following is true when it comes to courseloads; when in doubt go the easier route.

There is nothing wrong with adjusting yourself to 4 year university life and going a little lighter with your courseload the first semester you are there. The alternative of loading up and not doing as well as you hoped is alot worse.

I believe most medical schools want you to complete pre-med requirements at a University rather than a CC, as it is usually "easier" at CC's
