    I'm trying to structure an undergraduate curriculum that pays heed to USC's admission requirements, but their website info is a bit general, and I was wondering if anyone could help elaborate...

    At their school website, USC states: "...Satisfactory completion of the following college level classes; statistics, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, biology, anatomy, physiology, physics and English."

    I'll have anatomy, physio, microbiology, English, and statistics under my belt (as is the usual curriculum), but I was wondering, how much of inorganic, organic, and biochem do I need? A semester of each...a year of o-chem...etc? Also, For physics, will an introductory course suffice, or does it have to be with a lab component? Any clarification is greatly appreciated!

    Hi Arubi
    I am also applying to USC. I contacted them about the physics class. I think the web site said it didn't have to have a lab. I am taking a basic physics class online. I e-mailed the course description to the office manager and she said it was the right course. I would try them if you have any questions. They were very helpful with my questions.

    Thanks for replying, Jma. I'm glad a basic physics course with suffice.

    Do you know how much of inorganic, organic, and biochem I need? I'm assuming these are all separate courses, and not just concepts covered in a general chemistry class.

    Arubi,
    Are you only applying to USC??? Why did you choose USC?

    Physics can be VERY basic, i did this distance course and it was so easy and usc accepted it .....http://continue.utah.edu/detail.php?...d=PHYSCRSP1010 just double check because that was 2 years ago.

    Also, your courses from you bsn should include all of the standard chem courses required of sc.

    For the "biology" component listed in their prereqs, is that microbiology, or is that a separate college-level bio course in addition to micro?

    Also, the chem courses required for my BSN are chem 410 (inorganic) and chem 420 (organic/biochem). These are, of course, different from the chem courses a premed would have to take. Is that similar to what you took, too, miloisstinky?

    Arubi,
    no one in my class, including myself, had to take any additional chem courses, they were all covered by the BSN, several of us did have to take physics, which i guess is not standard with the BSN. This is sufficient, email Dr. Gold, the director if you have very specific questions, she is great and quick to respond.
