If you did retake, what did you get and did they ask you at your interview? What school did you get into?

I was out of school for a while, so the big question to admissions was could I get back into the habit of studying, excelling, etc..

Retook Bio I, Bio II, Chem I, OChem I, Physics I, and also took Microbiology for the 1st time..

Got A's in each course.

I got into SCO, and also AZCOPT.. after being accepted.. ICO and NOVA requested interviews, but declined b/c SCO is my top choice.

I took Physics I and II at a cc, earned A's, and it was perfectly fine. You've just gotta make sure that you prove to adcoms you can do well on the section of the OAT in which you took the class in. I got interviews for all 3 schools and declined 2 because my top choice accepted me.
