Okay I was in biomed first year and those were the courses i took:
1. Biology 1001A and 1002B
2. Chemistry 1100A and 1200B
3. Calculus 1000A and Math 1229 (You don't have to take the second calculus you can take Math which i recommend)
those top courses are your core courses and they add up to 3.0 credits
then yu need to take a physics
4. Physics 1301 and 1302 (This is NOT physics for life science)
5. Elective (I took food and nutrition but you can pick anything)
since you have transfer credits for 0.5 Calculus then I advice you to take the 1229 Math to obtain your 1.0 credit in Calc/Math and I would retake biology because the one you have is for Health Science but it's up to you :)
If you decide to transfer your biology credit then just pick up more electives like a language or psychology (a popular one) ;)

What was the food and nutrition elective(s) you took - was it at Brescia ?
