    Hey guys, this is my first post.

    One of the Prerequisites of UW Pharmacy is taking a Statistics class. I'm wondering if taking a Statistics class that is taught by the department of psychology instead of mathematics is alright?

    This is the course description for the psych stats class:

    " organization and classification of data, graphic representation, measures of central tendency and variability, percentiles, normal curve, standard scores, correlation and regression, and introduction to statistical inference; use of microcomputers for statistical calculations."

    Thanks in advance

    I don't feel like looking back at my statistic notes for the exact terms :p but are you learning all of those terms and parametric and non-parametric tests like the t-test, chi-squared, what a p<0.05 is, etc etc? I think those are the important things, that you actually induldge in the particular tests and how each of them are different.

    If you have a question, email them your class syllabus and the description above.

    Definitely ask the schools you're planning to apply... or even your school advisor. My roomie took both stats for math and quanitative methods (stats for psych) at a different school... and she says both classes covered the same materials. But the math stats one was taught better. To me, I think adcoms would prefer the math stats class, but call just in case.
