You should be good in Biology. And you should like to improve your knowledge by reading and another study activities ;)

I failed to enter Medical School because I am lazy :(

you can cover all your prereqs in college but if you do chem, physics and bio you'll have an easier time.

ya, medicine was what i was aiming for and i needed Bio 12, Chem 12, and Physics 11.
Though Biology is obviously the most important, so make sure you do well on it

studying human anatomy is tuff

Postby honee_v » Wed Oct 25, 2006 2:56 am

juz a note... human anatomy is so tough that some of my friends in med proper (who apparently have b.s. in biology) failed this subject.. some of them not only once but twice... biology is mostly taught in general, so it becomes hard when it comes to memorizing the tissues and evry veins and arteries, their origins, innervations, etc, on a human cadaver... mere knowledge in cat anatomy (in bio courses) wont be of too much help...

@honee

Than i guess i'm lucky that i'm from Romania(at least i would be if i wanted to go to med school)
Here everything is taught ilogically and memorising is the only way to pass a course
Happy me!!

Yeah, I wanted to me a M.D. 8)
That's what I call as "FATE", my fate is in Biology. Actually it is much better rather than to be an M.D. because being a Biologist I can work in Medicals, Veterinary, Animal Husbandry, Pharmaceuticals, and all Biology-related fields. It is nice, isn't it? ;)

Also, as you said, being a Biologist, I found this forum! :)
