Hi, I haven't posted on here in awhile, but I attend a private liberal arts school, which means limited classes, professors and schedule times. Like a previous poster, I too am a non-science major applying to mstp programs next year. My problem currently is this: I really want to take genetics this spring, but the class overlaps with a required class I must take to graduate. I spoke with the genetics prof, and he said that students enrolled in his class must attend and not skip as he gives pop quizzes. So, I was wondering if it would look down upon on my application if I took genetics as a pass/fail course so I could still learn most of the material through labs and some class sessions, and still attend my required class for graduation?
