You may have some of the pre-reqs, but you would need to take more classes. It would be less schooling and a more viable option than getting into professional school.For nursing wouldn't you have to start all over by being an RN? I am considering medical physics, do they ever have their own practice? What about stability?
Pharmacy no longer has an entrance exam. You might want to wander over to the pharmacy forum for more details on that gpa issue: Pre-PharmacyIt's just which type of school will accept me despite my gpa and I'll have to take their entrance exam.
I'm not in medical school, but from my understanding, you will most likely have to move no matter what path you go down. People apply to 20+ medical schools with the hopes of just being accepted to just one. Most of these students will then move to that schools location. What I'm getting at, is don't let location of a school keep you from following the path that will make you the most happy.I like both, but I can't think of a type of school that would accept me like PA, etc. I think I'd like to have veterinary medicine continued as a volunteering opportunity, but I would put it in the back on the healthcare side due to the closest school being so far away.
I am willing to put into a lot of effort. I've looked at the prerequisites for different post grad schools and I match them. It's just which type of school will accept me despite my gpa and I'll have to take their entrance exam. I'm thinking about compounding pharmacist or dentist. I want to help people, make a difference in the world. By being a dentist, I can help HIV patients as I'm interested in helping them in some form, whether it's pharmacy, dentistry, being a doctor, physician assistant, etc.
You would need to take at least a year's worth of upper-division science classes (around 35 credits) and do well in them. Fewer and fewer people are pursuing rad onc for residency due to the job market as an FYI.Is there anything I can do to improve my application?
Since your GPA is low, you would have to show you can handle science courses. It would need to be in new classes like immunology, genetics, molecular biology and virology. That level of commitment is more for medical and dental school. For other programs, you may just need enough to get over their cutoffs.I have taken general biology, general chemistry, physics course, human anatomy/physiology, ochem i and ii, microbiology, biochemistry, etc.
Where can I find that on their websites? I don't see it.
