    Anyone know off the top of their head what the math requirements usually are for DO schools?

    As far as I know they dont specify any math courses, they just require you to have one year of math. I took statistics and pre calc I.

    Clearly it depends on the school, but most DO/MD don't req any. If they do it is usually just one semester of college level math (eg. College Algebra, Trig, Calc, Stat even counts for some). Of the DO schools, only New Jersey req a math course. Even then it just says "math". That means you could probably get away with pre-algebra.

    Glad to hear you don't need much math for pre-DO. I'm just taking pre-calc right now and I've decided that I really don't like math (especially as a spring course).
