Hi all. I am unsure as to what to do and need some advice. Should I take Biochemistry this Spring? I have applied to the 2006 admission cycle a little late -have not heard anything yet. After applying I learned that Maryalnd now requires Biochemistry as a prereq. (This was not mentioned in the 2005-06 Official Guide to Dental Schools.) It is a new requirement for this year. Taking the class will set me back $2500. A bigger question I have is - will taking the course give me a huge advantage in dental school? Any advice from current dental students or applicants would be appreciated.
