I have a bit of a dilemma here.

I go to UBC in Canada, and unless you are either a Chem or Biochem major, there is only one semester of organic chem available for all other students. I think what they did was combined some of the organic into first year, and took out a lot of the physical chem from first year and put it into a second year course (chem 205). Therefore second year students wanting to apply to UBC's med school take chem 233(ochem), 235 (ochem lab), and 205 (physical chem).

Anyhow, can anyone tell me how I might resolve this issue, or if you went to UBC, and applied to schools other than UBC, was this a problem for you?

Thanks.

Check with schools, b/c some allow 1 sem of biochem instead of 2nd semester of ochem. Also, do u have community colleges in CAnada, If yes, you can take it there to satisfy the requirement.
