Undergrad senior scheduling: a call for opinions

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by da8s0859q, May 1, 2007.

  1. Summer session I: physics 1 + lab
    Summer session II: physics 2 + lab

    Fall 2007:
    - Pathophysiology
    - Organic Chemistry II
    - Medical Terminology

    Spring 2008:
    - General Chemistry II

    The world wants to know: would YOU take bio2 in f07 or s08? It will be the last remaining premed requirement besides the above. I could take it in either (s08 would give me free fridays through the fall, which I could definitely live with), or take it s08 and attempt to get into biochemistry for the fall, provided the prof would be willing to permit me into the course sans bio 2.

    GPA: ~3.9 to be 3.9+ by graduation so long as I continue my current grade trend, MCAT pending (Fall or Spring), applying next cycle, TX resident.

    Spring '08 is relatively empty because I'm (a) done with my non-"hard" science degree, and (b) unsure of what electives to stuff into my last semester, and (c) wondering when the MCAT will fall for me.

    Organic II is extremely difficult for some, so I would definitely take whatever is easiest in the fall, whether that is biochem or bio2 is up to you! Good Luck!!!
  4. Autres opinions?

    Spring. Concentrate on your organic.

    ^^^ Yup. O-Chem and Biochem do NOT mix. :scared:

    Go with spring. Don't take it with Org II if you can help it. Make sure it is offered for both. My undergrad only offered BIO I in the fall and BIO II in the spring, but many schools have since changed that policy to be more flexible for students.

    You got your answer for Bio2, but you may have a hard time getting into Biochem w/o Orgo2 and GenChem2. In actuality, Bio2 is probably the least relevant for Biochem.

    Enjoy senior year, it will fly by!
  10. That's the idea - definitely trying to. :thumbup:

    Orgo 1 and bio 2 are the prereqs at my university for biochem, and I don't believe the first half of the course is offered in the Spring (although bio 2 will be).

    Would also like to take immuno, but... yeah, with orgo 2 and patho, I'm not exactly trying to find headaches for myself on this. :smuggrin:
