Suzanne’s Answer

Eryx, in high school try to take biology, advanced biology if your school offers it, chemistry and, if offered, physics. If you can take AP or honors classes, do so. Look into taking classes at your local community college, too. When you get to college be sure you are in touch with the premed advisor right away. Most medical schools require at least a year of biology with labs, a year of inorganic chemistry with labs, a year of organic chemistry with labs. Some also require a term of physics and biochemistry.
