Sorry if this has been answered, but I'm curious if it (when the time comes) is ok to apply to med. school without having completed Physics I&II. Obviously they would be taken before marticulation (spelling?) but not when applying. Thanks for any replies :)

Of course you can apply to med school without having every single prereq done. People do it all of the time.

That said, taking the MCAT without any physics could be challenging, to say the least.

Thanks for the info. and is there really that much physics on the MCAT?

yes..there are 3 sections total excluding writing that go into your numerical score..half of the 2nd section is pretty much all physics...so you better study extra hard on physics if you don plan on taking it until later

I recommend at least taking Physics I before the MCAT. There is much less of Physics II on the test (optics, half life, others), but it is doable.

Oh poo...well thanks for the information, I guess it might be best to at least take physics I before the MCAT then.

Thanks again! :thumbup:
