SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey i had this question, are there any advantages of having a BS during Podiatry school. I mean podiatry school is full time and runs from 8-5 (normally). So i dont think anyone with a BS cud do a job along with studies. So apart from personal satisfatcion that u r have a BS, are there like any real advantages over a person who is attending Podiatry School with 90 credits (like me ). But i do have a illinois radiography license , so i will be working during weekends. i know tat people who have a BSN or BS in Medical Technology or Radiography have the advantage of working flexible schedules but someone who graduated with a BS in Pshycology, Maths, Biology, Chem or other traditional Pre-med subjects have no options. what are there benefits, why wait one more year in Undergrad when u cud start pod/med school/dental school after 3rd year only.. i will really appreciate it. Thank you guys. plzz note iam just speaking for applicants who want to be just DPM and get into practice, not for DPM/PHD or DPM/dual degrees. i know for tat u need to have a BS. have a gr8 weekend.
