    Help! I'm a premed, non-science major who wants to take a Behavioral Neuroscience class (it doesn't have a lab) as one of my biology requirements.

    My question is - does anyone know if this class will count for most private med schools?

    I have taken Molecular Bio (with lab) already for my other bio requirement.

    The problem with the neuroscience class is that it doesn't have a lab. Most of the pre-reqs all say one year of biology with lab.

    And besides not having a lab, neuroscience is too specialized and not an admission requirement. You need a year of biology major biology (usually introductory biology) with labs.

    Take neuroscience if you will for your own edification.

    I just noticed Cambridge. If you are at Harvard undergrad, you should be asking your advisor.
