How important is calculas? The med school I intend to apply to does not require it. I am hoping to get into this school because of its close proximity and my husband’s job, but I know that applying to more schools will increase my chances of getting in and these other schools may require calc. Do you need it for the MCAT? Also, has anyone ever taken one of those Kaplan MCAT review courses? Are they helpful? I know they are pretty expensive.
