On a separate note, does getting into Chem 6A vs. Chem 6 do anything special for one trying to get into med school--to they really look at an advanced class vs. a regular class from freshman year???
Any info would be helpful!!
Yes, even if you arent taking it this semester, you should take the placement exam if you think you might be taking the language later. As for the Chem 6 vs 6a, for medical school it really shouldnt matter. The difference comes in the fact that chem 6a is a much smaller class, and they dont review as much of the basic material.

Kevin, the registrar's website says Dr. Pearsall is teaching it. Has that been changed?
