Are there any courses I should take in my freshman year in college, in order to get into a physical therapy program once I graduate.
My college advisor set up these courses for me

World Civilization 1, Gen Chemistry, Gen Chemistry Rec,  Gen Chemistry Lab,  Writing 1, Survey of Algebra and Trig, University Experience( just to adjust to college , Im guessing)

Is this alright or should I be taking something different,

well This probably isn't my final schedule
I can always call my adviser, I just wanted to see other people view on the courses I'm taking and if its going to help be get into a career in PT.
Any suggestions are Highly appreciated, this is going to my first year in college and I don't want to waste a year taking classes that lead no where in the path I want to follow

definitely contact the schools you're thinking of applying to after college and ask what their requirements are. But remember that most places require that you have a bachelors, and most bachelors require that you take basic history and math and other electives. It's really hard to "waste" a year covering those.

First of all, you should take courses on biology or anatomy, or both. And yes, physics is needed as well. Actually, biology, physics, chemistry, math, English is a basic set, needed in every physical therapy graduate school.
