    I know Harvard Med requires a year of Calculus, but other than that I don't know of any other. Which med schools do you know of that require Calc 1 and 2 as a pre-med req? Thanks

    It's mostly the top schools that do. I know that Hopkins does as well, but they will take Stats in place of a semester of Calc. Now, does anyone know whether that needs to be stats through the math department, or can it be through the Psych department?

    I just checked Hopkins website and the requirements are

    Mathematics-Calculus or Statistics, one year (6 to 8 semester hours) Advanced Placement credit for calculus, acceptable to the student’s undergraduate college, may be used in fulfillment of one semester of the Hopkins’ math requirement.

    Do they mean one year of math which includes a semester or calc or stats?

    I dunno what your source of confusion is. It is either one OR the other for one year.

    Do you think you can take 1 semester of calc and 1 semester of stats. Or does it have to be a full year of one or the other? Thanks!
