**Is there any way around having to have taken Diiferential Equations in college?? In the MSAR it says that you need Diif EQ or Integral Calculus. What exactly is Integral Calculus? If this question seems stupid then forgive me...I admit my stupidity. Because on the secondary it askes "What college level courses in Diff EQ AND Calculus will you complete before medical school?" I was wondering if anyone else is in a hole with this one? Thanks! **

Seems to me only engineering majors (as I used to be when I took it) and people trying to get into certain grad schools (one of my PoliSci friends) take DiffEQ usually, so it's sort of a weird question for them to ask.

As for "integral calculus" (as opposed to derivative calculus?), I guess they're trying to say the 2nd semester of calculus, as jot said, but don't you do integrals in the first semester? It's been over 4 years since I took single variable and that was in high school so the semester thing didn't really apply, so I don't remember. I would guess multivariable calculus would count too?

My guess is that they just want to know for information purposes and it's not a requirement, but I've never looked at the WUSTL viewbook. I wonder why they don't ask about linear algebra...
