    If I take pre-req course during my graduate program, does it count as the post-bacc GPA on the med application?

    Hi everyone I am planning to attend the MS neuroscience program this coming spring. If I decide to take some of the pre-req courses during my graduate program, would these be counted as Post-Bacc GPA or Graduate GPA in my medical school application?

    Med School Secondaries

    Pardon my novice question, I know one should always check beforehand before applying, but I was wondering when applying to US MD/DO Schools, if an applicant were not to meet the pre-requisites for entry, would they ever still proceed to the secondaries round? Anyone here know of what MD/DO...

    Which class should I take - Cell Biology or Medical Microbiology?

    Forgive me if this is the wrong forum, but I think the non-trad aspect applies most. Since I have one more semester (spring) before I *hopefully* begin M1 classes, I want to take at least one more class. I have the option of "Medical Microbiology" or "Eukaryotic Cell Biology". The reason it's...

    [info] expiration date for old pre requisite classes for non traditional

    Hi all, I just wanted to contribute my 2 cents here. I am a non traditional. When I first started looking up infos here, there were not much information about how old the pre requisites can be. Some, or most people, say no more than 3-5 years old, which means, you either have to apply right out...

    Taking classes after graduating BUT NOT IN A POST-BACC program?

    Hi! I never really post on here so I don't know if this has been asked/answered before, so sorry. I'm a 3rd year and I plan on graduating next year. I've taken most of my pre-reqs already, because I require them to graduate for my major. However, I don't have time for some random requirements...

    Is it difficult for nontraditional science majors to fulfil pre-reqs?

    I'm an incoming Cognitive science (B.S) major at UCI and was wondering how difficult would it be for someone like me to take some pre-requisites courses for medical school that I don't have to take pertaining to my major? Like, I don't have to take a chemistry course for my major, but can I...

    can this non-science majors class count as a bio pre req? (TMDSAS)

    A couple years ago I took Biology for non-science majors. 4 hour course with a lab. (TCCCN=Biol 1408) Does anyone know if this can count as a biology pre-req for med school in texas? I know this is probably a dumb question, but worth an ask. Otherwise, assuming Biochem can't count, I will have...

    Calc and Physics in the Same Semester?

    Hi all, I'm a third year pre-vet student facing some tight ends currently. I had a rough freshman to sophomore transfer which, to put it lightly, screwed up a lot of my credits and now i'm struggling to get all my pre-req ducks in row. So far, actually, everything looks good. If my second...

    How do med schools check if your course was online? One of my pre-reqs is online (Biochem)

    So unfortunately, I have already submitted a couple secondary applications before reading that these schools DO NOT accept online courses for pre-requisites (University of Miami Miller and John's Hopkins). All but one of my pre-reqs have been satisfied through AP or through in-person...

    Pre-req Question

    So I guess I am getting a little lost in the weeds in terms of the requirements to apply to a PharmD program. I recently (December 2016) graduated with a B.S. in Biochemistry, which covers all the pre-reqs for pharmacy except microbiology. I had not planned on going this route, but after working...

    CLS Micorbiology

    I am in this predicament where I am required to take microbiology as a pre-req course at CSUDH. The only problem is that I graduated recently from my University without taking that class. The counselor at CSUDH told me that microbiology would required a three-semester wait period. I was hoping...

    Pre-req Replacement

    Quick question about a pre-requisite. My university I am graduating from offers Gen Chem 1 and 2 with lab however for engineering majors (me) they have us take a combined Gen Chem with a lab. This resulted in me only having 4 semesters hours of gen chem with lab. My school doesn't offer any...

    General Admissions & OTCAS Got accepted and then got kicked... advice?

    I got accepted to OT school under the provision I'd pass a pre-req class with a "B". Long story short, I got a C, and got kicked. I was struggling with the class because a loved one had gotten critically ill, then passed away shortly after. Should I submit the same Personal Statement? Should I...

    Physics II winter session - NYC (or Boston)?

    Has anyone had any luck finding a winter session physics II course in NYC? I'm striking out! (a couple of the CUNY's offer physics I, but not II). I would also consider doing it in Boston if anyone knows of an option there, but NYC would definitely be better! Many thanks. (I know there have...

    Wanting to begin a new career

    I currently have a BA degree, but at this point I want nothing more than to redo the last few years and study science instead, because I have realized that medical school was the right path for me. It's something that I've wanted to do all my life, but for various personal reasons in high...
