I have had some issues finishing my MD degree (other posts in a different forum) - left US MD school after withdrawining and went to Carib I failed step 1 the first time, and passed the second time with a 206 (pass is 192) I have always been interested in Psych/Peds and have worked with autistic family members in the past albeit in a non professional setting From what my friend tells me, he is taking online courses (Capella - MS in Psych with BCBA tract), gaining his supervision hours (1500) and about to take his BCBA board exam. He has a job offer for 30 hours a week, full benefits, salaried at 55-60K Would the time spent in medical school (withdrawal) decrease my chances of getting in? Do i even need to send them my medical school transcripts (3 failures and then withdrawal with only one class not completed Pathology - which i finished in the Carib) Will the passing of Step 1, my interest in Psych/Peds help me to find a job quicker? As the options dwindle for me, becoming a BCBA is close to the top as it is clinically related, rewarding to help autistic population, and according to the internet at the minimum i would be making 50-60k But my main question besides the rant above is will the school i graduate from (such as Capella) hurt my chances at a good job down the road if lets say I work as a BCBA for 3-4 years and apply for another position? Or is the job experience trumping the school you went to. Many of the BCBA programs (MS Psych is what im interested in) require GRE or require you to be on campus for supervision hours etc In the next few weeks I will be studying to become an RBT and getting my clinical hours to get a better idea of the day to day struggles and rewards of becoming a BCBA... What do you think guys??
