Here's an email exchange between me and SGU admissions. I think it can help some of you out:
me: I have one year (2 four-month courses) in physics without lab. Can it substitute for your one semester of physics with lab a component?
SGU: Please tell me your overall qualifications, school name, grad date, GPA and MCAT score if relevant. Also, what was your physics grade?
me: I'm going to graduate from the University in Canada next April. My cumulative GPA is 3.60, and my GPA in my last two years is 3.89. I took the MCAT 3 times:
1st: ** 8 PS 9 VR 5 WS M
2nd ** 11 PS 11 VR 9 WS Q
3rd ** 11 PS 12 VR 7 WS O
I took Physics 1, and Physics 2. My grades in those courses are 88 and 94 respectively.
SGU: With your qualifications, it seems as if you would be a strong candidate for our program. We would accept your Physics 1 and 2 to fulfill our requirement.
