I graduated in Kinesiology with a concentration in clinical movement. My GPA right now is close to a 3.6 and I didn't take any physics courses or general chemistry courses (received introductory chemistry clearance).

My questions is, should I take these courses now with the potential of lowering my GPA or should I improve my grades on the pre-reqs that are requested to get into a program?

I got a B in anatomy and physiology but got As in movement anatomy and physiology.

Would it look good if I have these supplemental courses added to my transcript or a 4.0 pre-req much better?

I am applying to three schools at the moment and I am crossing my fingers that I get accepted into a program to start next year.
