I'm a sophomore government major, and I recently decided I want to go to med school. I have been thinking on and off about med school for a couple of years, but I also wanted to explore my interest in political science. With that said, I've made the decision that I will have gone as far as I would like in my major and I would like to go to med school. I've done some volunteering and job shadowing in a hospital around college, and those experiences confirmed my interest. Anyway, here's my timeline for taking the pre-req classes, since I only have physics 1 done. I'm a real type-A personality, and I think I can get all of them done without having to take a year off after college and between med school. Well, here goes. (We have a three term academic year btw) Summer: Zoology for credit , and I plan to study as much chem 1 on my own as possible. Fall term : Accelerated chem during fall term (it's chem 1 & 2 combined) and principles of biology (intro). Winter term junior year: Organic 1 and studying for the mcat. I might audit physics 2 so that I learn the concepts. The reason for this is because I'm somewhat worried about doing physics and organic at the same time. Spring term junior year: Organic 2 and take the mcat in April Summer after junior year: fill out applications Winter term senior year: physics 2 (so to get it done before I graduate) Anyway, I would love any input on how viable this plan is. I know that I'll have to study exceptionally hard, but I've got a really high gpa and I do that anyway, so I'm well aware of the effort I need to put in. Would this be a practical plan?
