Can anyone at or going to UF explain why first years get charged a microbiolgy fee (artound 1,000). I don't see it on our schedule and I already took micro. Any help is appreciated.

We better be getting platinum plated inoculating loops for the amount we're paying.

I can't even find anything about this except on the tuition cost page. Any P2+ out there?

So hopefully, our tuition will go down to around $9100-9500 next year. :luck:

Tuition at UF isn't assessed by credit hours. The pharmacy program sets a tuition which is one of the lowest (if not the lowest) in the country. You will have to pay for a few extras here and there, but it is still extremely inexpensive when you compare it to other schools.

As for microbiology, it doesn't matter if you already took it. They want you to take their micro class. I tried to get out of it and tried to get out of biochem. Dr MacKenzie told me that this was "medical microbiology" and "clinical biochemistry" which were not the same as my undergrad classes. They turned out being a good review, but I didn't learn anything new.

I'm having the same issue with getting out of Anatomy and Physiology at UGA. :( They are still probably going to make it take it with them too.

I really liked the micro class at UF. Dr. Asghari is great! It was a really good review! It really helped reinforce the material I learned in previous classes. I came out of it with a better overall understanding of our immune system.
