Loved General Chem, but not so much Organic what's next?

    i really liked Gen. Chem b/c it involved calculations and i miss that, what's the next Chem course I can take that is heavy in Math in Chem?

    also, i understand and know most of the things that is expected from a 1st yr Organic student, it's just not that appealing to me.

    What you say is not surprising. You will enjoy Quantitative/Analytical, Physical, and Inorganic chemistry as much as or more than you enjoyed General Chemistry. In fact, these other courses can also help you understand some of Organic Chemistry a little better. A good amount of calculational activity can be applied to chromatographic behavior and exctractions, too.
