    Pre-med modified?

    Advertisements



    How does one get into the premed modified? Is it because he/she couldn't get into the basic sciences or even the extended basic sciences. From what my grades are as of now, I don't think I have a chance getting into the basic sciences, even though all my pre-reqs will be completed before the summer ends. What courses does one take in the modified pre-med? Thanks..

    It's up to Dr M, the dean of premed to determine what courses you take if you're modified. Everyone is a little different. You can be placed in premed if you lack certain courses, or if your grades are less than desirable..where you'll be "given a chance" to prove yourself.

    I see.. but our students guaranteed a seat in the basic sciences if they maintain a 3.0 in that premed semester?

    Yes..if you maintain the 3.0 in premed..then you're guaranteed a spot in full basic science. If it's less than 3.0..there is no guarantee..you may get extended basic science..or you may have to repeat premed classes again.

    I see.. For example.. I have taken all the pre-requisites.. but since my gpa isnt too great, will i just need to take genetics, and cell bio? Because nothing else is below a C.

    It's up to Dr M the dean. I will say that many of us who came in to the "modified" premed took genetics, microbiology, A&P, and cell biology. That was a common schedule for about 20 of us or so...Also some took organic if they needed it. But this was also a year ago..Dr M might have changed the way he does things.
