    I need to take two from this (already narrowed down) list:

    Human Parasitology
    Neurochemistry, Pharmacology and Behavior
    Immunology
    General Virology
    Bacterial and Viral Pathogens

    All are upper-level.

    Thanks!

    Probably Immunology and Bacterial and Viral Pathogens.

    They are probably the hardest one out of all those topics as well.

    Immunology
    General Virology
    Bacterial and Viral Pathogens

    Any of these three classes would help you in dental school but Immunology would be the best value.

    Most of the virology that you will cover will be heavily based on pure memorization. Taking an UG course before dental school would definitely help you remember the facts more easily later on. Immunology is higher yield because while it does have a lot of memorization of pure facts, it is also has a lot of concepts that are more easily remembered from UG to dental school.
