  1. It is a calculus-based math. I believe there's room in my schedule to do the into to calculus math before-hand, which also allows me to opt out of the math placement test (you need a 60% or above in order to take any calculus class at my university). It probably is in my favour to take the intro course and then the calculus one. Thanks for the advice!
  2. Hi everyone, Long story short, I have a BA, but am planning to go back to school for two years for a BSc to improve my grades (currently sitting at an 81%) and to improve my chances on the MCAT. However, I have a pretty big problem, I have not taken a math class since graduating high school in 2011. I have math A30, B30 and C30, but no pre-Calculus class. Does anyone have any advice on how to brush up on my math skills before starting classes? I'll be starting classes this summer, but will likely not be taking any math classes until Winter semester 2017 or Summer 2017, so I have a bit of time to start "pre-studying" before actually entering the class. I've signed up for Khan Academy so I can watch some of their university math class lectures and do practice quizzes, but it would be helpful if anyone has been in the same position or has any other advice?
  3. Thank you for your advice everyone!! I think I'll be leaving law after this first year. I'm not one to quit part way through the year, but I don't want to spend the time and money getting a degree I do not want to pursue a career in. My B.A. average is only an 81, so unfortunately I think I will have to go back and get a B.Sc. in order to boost my grades (and give me some of the foundations for the MCAT that I don;t have), but I would rather pursue a career in sciences regardless of whether or not I am admitted into medicine.
  4. At this point, I feel like I would rather have neither degree than have just the law degree. It's a lot of time and money to spend doing something I think will ultimately make me very unhappy.
  5. Hi everyone, As a little bit of a background, I am a law student (first year of three) who was convinced to go to law school by family pressure, though I really wanted, and still want to be, a doctor. My first semester of law has just confirmed this for me further. I was wondering whether it would be better for me to drop out of law after this year, and go back to school for a biology-related degree (it would take me another 2-3 years) or better to stay in law and apply at the end of my degree? I have an undergrad degree (Bachelor of Arts) with an overall average of 81.4, and I can't see law school as a way to drastically improve my marks. I think I would have a better chance at improving my grades or at least keeping them steady with a second degree. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
