    Since many med schools will not be accepting AP credits for math (I received credits for 2 semesters), I was wondering if I should take those two classes that would've taken over that requirement. However, my situation is different. I took the Calc. Level III for Engineers and I received C+. So, should I go on and take Levels I, II or move on to higher level math as Differential Eq., etc.? I haven't taken any math class after Calc. Level III and that was first semester of 1st year college, so I am extremely afraid of math right now :eek: ... and I am an old... 3rd year...

    Check with the medical schools in which you intend to apply that have this requirement and ask them what classes qualify. Doesn't statistics qualify as math? That wouldn't be as difficult a class, in my opinion. I don't think there are any schools that require more than one year of math, so perhaps statistics in combination with the Calc III you have already taken will be sufficient? Again, check with the schools.

    I assumed you took AP calculus BC. If I were you, I would take calc 3 and 4.

    Yes, I did take BC. Will Psychology Statistic count as math? I thought Psyc classes aren't even calculated into science gpa. I'm confused.
