LOL, yeah this application process is taking way too long too... I wonder if I can just skip the secondaries. :p

Pretty much if it is a requirement, they want to see you bust your ass and get through it like the rest of us.

Vanderbilt made me take a literature course for a grade after granting me an interview. Accepted me before seeing the grade but made me do it - two pass/fail courses counted for nothing.

In addition to the fact that med schools want to see the grade, it really doesn't make much sense to pass/fail an English course (I considered this once freshmen year).

If your course was anything like mine, your grade is only passed on a few papers. You'll probably have to write all of them anyways to pass and even with minimal effort, you should still be able to get at least a B on a paper...

Please tell your Uncle Panda that you are a foreigner and that English is not your native language which explains why it's taking so much time. I shudder to think that not only have you waited until the end to take an English class but it is kicking your ass.

I weep.

But if you've been accepted to medical school I don't see how it matters. Pass/Fail has no effect on your GPA. Your medical school just wants to see that you don't go from being an A student to an F student after being accepted.

It's kind of a technicality, but I'm pretty sure no med school will accept a prerequisite class unless it's graded normally.

Considering that you used "to much" instead of "too much", I'd say that you need that class.

I took two English classes, one for a grade and one pass/fail, and no school where I interviewed seemed to have a problem with this. Then again, I was a history major with high honors and had A's in several classes in Spanish literature, so AdComms had plenty of evidence that I can read and write properly.
