I was wondering if anyone knows how DO schools view accredited distance learning classes or degrees? I'm currently a military spouse stationed in Guam and the only way I can attend science classes are through distance learning. I will soon have my bachelors degree from Mountain State University in West Virginia (online) and was considering a masters program online since I don't know where we will be stationed next..I'm considering Illinois Institute of Technology Master of Biology or Master of Science in Biology. Any suggestions? Should I just wait to see where we are headed first? Should I go ahead and take the MCAT or take the GRE to get into graduate school. Will most schools take the MCAT score in leu of GRE? Thanks.

MCAT for med school & GRE for grad school

Take both if you are applying to both

I'm doing an online program and I would think it shows that you have discipline, but I cannot confirm or deny it. :)

It's time consuming b/c you have to take all of your notes from texts, at least if you get all the details. My instructors tend to test on every little minutia. :smuggrin:

Thanks for your input. What online program are you attending and at what school? (If you don't mind me asking) I'm always looking for different schools that I can attend online. I'm only familiar with a couple of schools that offer online programs.
