I read it in the MSAR....it says 3 semesters of social science with emphasis in behavioral. "A minimum of two semesters must be taken in a sequence within the same department and an additional semester within the social sciences." I think I didn't see that last part until like the third time I looked at it. So, I guess it means any social, not just behavioral, science. *sorry* I had a semester of psych my freshman year and am now taking two semesters of sociology. Hope that works!
OMG.. you're right. I cant believe i missed that. Good thing im a psych major as well.

4. Two (2) semesters of General Physics or the equivalent.
B. Candidates are expected to complete three (3) semesters of Social Science courses with an emphasis in the Behavioral Sciences. A minimum of two (2) semesters must be taken in a sequence within the same department, and one (1) additional semester within the Social Sciences.
C. In addition to the above, candidates are expected to take at least one of the following courses:
U of I students have the option of taking a semester of biochem instead of the second semester of organic. Believe me, it is not unfair as our biochem 350 is by far the hardest class I've had here. And I'd say that about 75% of med schools will accept our biochem substitution, so it's not like we're trying to pull one on everybody here.
