Dying to get into PCO!
SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
This is my first post so bear with me.
I REALLY want to get into PCO. Here's my GPA so far
first semester: 3.7 (15 credits)
Second semester: 3.65 (17 credits)
Third semester: 3.2 (16 credits)
this semester: also looking like its going to be a 3.2 (17 credits)
Organic Chemistry I and II with lab
Microbiology with lab
General Chemistry I and II with lab
Quantitative Biological Methods with lab
Cumulative without this semester is a 3.51.
Science GPA is probably somewhere around a 3.2 I'm guessing
I am EXTREMELY concerned about getting two 3.2 GPA's
I go to the University of Central Florida but I am transferring to Rutgers in the Fall
-I am in the Honors College
-I am in an advanced math program called EXCEL
-I am in a leadership/service learning program called LEAD
-I am a mentor for GEMS (Girls Excelling in Mathematics and Science)
-I am in the Pre-Professional Medical Society and held a Director position last year
-I volunteered 22 hours at the hospital this semester, and will do more over the summer
-I often volunteer in programs that work with children and underprivileged schools in the Central Florida area, such as Junior Achievement, Achieving a College Education, and others
-I have worked as a receptionist in a Chiropractic Office for 2 years (no optometry jobs available in my town =[)
-I have 2 different optometrists lined up to shadow this summer
I know its hard to judge without an OAT, but I am so worried about my 3.2 GPA for two semesters in a row.
The first semester I can sort of explain (Four friends of mine from high school died in unrelated accidents during the semester, and my dog died too. it all really took a toll on me)
This semester I dont reallly have an excuse. overloaded myself but I can't tell them that!
Sorry this is so long, but I've never really gotten any good idea of if I am on the right track, and I am tired of constantly stressing!

I don't see a question in your post but I'd say: 1) stop stressing 2) you'll get in if you get a 300 or more on your OAT which is average.

OSU Class of 2015
As long as you get above a 300 on the OAT you'll do fine. A 3.2 for PCo is fine.

Breath. You will be fine. I noticed that some of the lowest of the low stats also got in, which made me question the competence of the student body. But on the good side, it will be easier to beat the test average, maybe...?
