    I did and I didn't even take physics in college (gotta love AP)! However, I did cheat and take a microbio/cell bio class in Dublin.

    Majors: Liberal studies and philosophy.

    Moral: Take what you want and don't apologize for that.

    Me too. In fact, many post-baccs are.

    Undergraduate major: Theatre Arts.

    Hadn't taken a science class since junior year of high school. I did take biochemistry, genetics and cell biology this year while I was applying, but technically they didn't know about any of that when they looked at my application.

    Moral: listen to IrishOarsman. :love:

    yepper. i didn't take science in undergrad and those classes took me long enough in post-bac land!

    though i'll take biochem before starting, it wasn't on my apps.

    go non-trads!

    My friend was, but she did have cell biology in addition to the bare minimum and she wasn't a science major. It happens.
