    I'm in my 4th year at UofT with an HBSc. Would taking one pass / fail course per semester with 3 other FCES (so 4 FCEs per semester) bad for med/grad schools in Canada and USA? My courses would be: a 2nd year course, 4th year research project, 3rd year bio course, and a 300+ Pass / fail course. I plan on doing the pass/fail in a History course for a different perspective.

    Thanks

      I would say no, and as an engineer I'm just as afraid of the subjective grading. A lot of schools like students who have taken humanities classes, and they want to see how well you perform in classes that aren't strictly science or math.

      But I'm a pre-med, so don't take what I have to say for granted.

        Im thinking of taking Pass/Fail in a History of Medicine class (4th year level) and another humanities/social sci class in the second semester.

        Would a Pass/Fail in history of medicine be bad cuz they want to see how I do in something related to medicine? Also, on a side note, would grad schools not accept you if they see ur interested in medicine cuz they'll think ur not actually serious about going to grad school (applying there as a backup)?
