I think I pretty much finished all the prereqs gen chem+lab ochem + lab (to be taken) physics+lab 1 yr english) I took genetics and biochemistry the past year. Am I missing any other basic prereqs? -What other classes are recommended before I apply this May/June? -When is a good time to take the DAT during my 3rd year? How long should I expect to be studying for it and how vigorously? -Is research necessary? I have volunteered in a lab before and didnt really like it, but I plan to take an elective class that gives you a grade for doing individual research with faculty -OH YEAH! and i heard about how the app asks about manual dexterity (can being a violinist count? I'm minoring in it) -any other random things I should know (stuff like the manual dexterity thing, recommended ECs, etc) THANKS!
