I took AP stats in high school and got AP credit for it, so I assumed I wouldn’t really need to take any more stats classes. However, I was looking through course requirements for different medical schools and it seems like there’s a decent emphasis on statistics, so I was wondering if I should take STATS 250, even though I came in with stats credit?
Thank you for your question! As far as I know, there are some medical schools that do accept AP Statistics credit and some that do not. Here is a list of U.S. medical schools and the AP credits they accept. To be on the safe side, I would recommend taking STATS 250 in case there are some medical schools you might apply to that require it. It also gives you a helpful refresher on statistics and is a very doable class.
I hope that helps! Let us know if you have any other questions.
