    Does a class have to include a lab to be counted in the bcpm, math obviously has no lab, but for my year of chem, there was lab, and the year of intro bio there was also lab. Now im taking classes like microbio and on genetics with no lab, i was wondering whether these would still be considered science classes? Also do psychology classes such as biopsychology count for the bcpm?

    Any course from the biology, chemistry, physics, or math department, counts into your BCPM.

    It isn't just based on department, it is based on the content of the course. If you took a biochemistry of nutrition course through the nutrition department at your school, for example, it would count as either Biology or Chemistry. Statistics through a social science department would count as math, etc. According to what I was told by my pre-med advisor, if more than 50 percent of the coursework was biology, that is the correct classification, etc.
