    Need ur advice on my approach to being accepted

    Advertisements



    Hello all,

    Just wanted some advice on what approach i should take into getting considered....Basically, I lack both General & Organic Chemistry.

    Is it just worth it to do pre-med?

    Or do a half sem of each general and organic chem here at home? (would they even consider half years....or send me back to premed anyways?) or maybe i can get into pre med 2?

    thanks

    you have to take chem 1 and 2 before even taking orgo 1. u can not go into Pre Med with majority of sci courses taken and exceptional grades.

    pre-med

    So basically, "Pre-med" is for those who didnt do well in their science courses? Can someone with a low gpa get into Pre-med?

    Not necessarily, someone may choose to enroll in pre-med because they may lack the pre-requisite courses but may have good-high gpa's....or you may have someone who has been out of school for a while and they may want to have a 'refresher' in these courses....

    im not really sure if there is a definite cut off for grades to gain entry into the pre-med program...remember...they look at the entire application....also, they will not admit you into pre-med if they feel that you couldn't succeed....

    Not sure why you want to go with the pre-med route. If I were you, I will finish the pre-requisite courses before I apply. For one thing, MUA isn't hard to get in and for another, you may want to shorten your stay in the Caribbeans because it's nothing like home.

    I call it like I see it. I am not paid by ValueMD or any school. Nor do I recruit for any school.
