Would taking an online trig course affect my application to med/optom school? My calc courses will be in classroom. Also, the schools that I attend due to my being in the military are only 8 weeks long... but the course still covers all the material as a regular semester (just accelerated). My question is regarding the prereq's for med/optom school requiring... ie: 1 semester of Calc or 2 quarters. Does this mean that I have the option to either take 1 semester of calc 1 or take a quarter of calc 1 and a quarter of calc 2?
