PhD in pchem


I am currently an undergrad chem major debating between med school or PhD in chemistry.  I have heard that pchem doctorate programs are full of math, so I am just wondering what math courses would be a good preparation for this.  I have taken calc I, II, and III, and I will likely take differential equations, so do I really need any more than that?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Probably not, but more math is not a bad idea.

Linear algebra is a useful math course to take, especially for quantum.  I also found linear algebra helpful for understanding some of the material in my differential equations class.
