  4. Thanks! And do you know if it matters where the classes are taken (a community college vs a 4-year institution)? Trying to weigh the options of just doing a true post-bacc program.
  5. Hello - As this cycle winds down for me, I am evaluating my course load for the next cycle to improve my GPA. I currently have a 3.0 and was told that a 3.2 would be better for the next round. That said, it would take about 6-8 courses (depending on credit hours) to bring up the GPA. I have a few low grades in the pre-reqs that I plan on retaking however, could someone let me know you think the below course is worth taking or would it look poorly since it is a general studies requirement? Human Biology - A basic treatment of structure and function of the human body based upon biological principles. Credit not allowed toward the major or minor sequence. (Satisfies general education) A separate question is the microbiology requirement for most schools - has anyone taken medical microbiology to satisfy the course requirement? I appreciate any help & advice!
