It's likely that you will have completed all of the requirements if you have the Biology & Chemistry degrees. One thing mentioned in the AAMC is "a year of English", so you may have to check to see whether your non-science work qualifies :

And also individual school requirements of particular medical schools you want to apply to

As percival said, agreed. I just wanted to say good luck and I hope you make it!

Also: thank you for serving this country. With three family members in the Navy, I just wanted to say your work is greatly appreciated and I'm sure your family is happy you are home.

Keep up the great work.

I would also take some biochemistry, psych and sociology as they're going to be on the new 2015 MCAT. These classes are also going to satisfy pre-reqs for many medical schools.

As you mentioned that you have a bachelor in biology and chemistry and you want to start prep for medical school so i think you should continue prep in bio and chem because for an entrance exam to a medical school bio and chem are two main subjects and also a kick to start your carrier.
