I am planning on applying in fall 2011 for the 2012 fall cycle. I will be taking the january 2011 PCAT and maybe august or october again.

Do you think I am taking too much classes? I will be applying to 6-7 schools. Does this sound right? ANY ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED

I think it looks OK. Spring '11 looks aggressive but not un-doable if you are a pro at budgeting your time. I wouldn't take the PCAT before taking orgo II and calc though.

I am not sure whether it is a good idea to take Jan PCAT before taking micro and A&P because you might lose the A&P and micro points (they make about 35%-40% of the bio section on the PCAT) ... I don't think you need Org II to score well on your PCAT; I only had gen chem I,II and Org I and scored 93%..

I will be studying from Dr. Collins notes, Pearson Practice tests, and Kaplan. Do you think I will still be fine. I am not sure about math but I got an A in trig and I don't think precal and calc will be much harder. When do you think I should take the PCAT?

I would take it summer '11 after you finish with stats since stats is on the PCAT.
 
Hi everyone, I am new here, but I am also planning a pretty intense Fall semester and would like some input from people who have done the same.

Fall '10:
G chem II
Calculus I
Anatomy
G bio II

So basically looking at six 3 hour labs per week.

Spring '11:
O chem I
Calculus II
Physics I
Molec/Biochem

Unsure about spring on whether to go for Physics or Physiology. I plan on applying next year so I need to finish all my classes by Fall '11. Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks
