    I don't need to finish them before senior year right? I can take some after I've applied and it'll still count? How does the school figure out if I'm eligible or not then?

    Thanks!

    You should indicate list any future coursework on your AMCAS that you deem necessary. If you don't have prerequisites filled, list them as planned/future coursework. Its best to have the pre-reqs done before taking the MCAT, however.

    Well, it's a little too late for that :p That's good that I have enough time to take the classes though.

    Most schools require you fulfill all requisites by matriculation.

    I would really try to have everything finished by the time you take the MCAT. I hadn't taken my 2nd physics course and it really hurt me (got a 7 is PS) As I went through Physics 2 last semester I was like dude this was on my MCAT!
