  1. Has anyone here taken any pre-req classes online through Doane University? Wondering about biochem, but haven't found much about it online. Also wondering if Doane's course is doable course for someone who hasn't taken orgo since 2015.
  2. Has anyone taken Introduction to Biochemistry online through UC San Diego Extension? I am contemplating taking this course but there is no access to the syllabus before enrollment, so I have no idea what the course entails. I also need to submit documentation of the course to my job prior to enrollment for partial tuition reimbursement. I really do appreciate it if anyone can help! http://extension.ucsd.edu/studyarea/index.cfm?vAction=singleCourse&vCourse=BIOL-40145&vsacategoryid=356&vStudyAreaID=115 Does anyone recommend a different online Biochemistry course? I have taken Organic Chemistry and Medical Terminology through UNE and I would prefer to avoid taking Biochemistry there as well.
  3. I am entering into my third year of undergrad, and have completed the required courses to enroll in a biochemistry course. After looking at several PA programs, I noticed that many programs require biochemistry and most highly recommend it. At our school, we have the option of taking a nutritional biochemistry through our nutrition department and a biochemistry course through our biology department. I was wondering if taking the nutritional biochemsitry would be evaluated differently than the regular biochemistry and if this could cause problems later on when applying for schools. Thanks
  4. I need some input on which online course I should take at Doane vs UNE? If you have complete biochem at either school, please share your experience: pros, cons, difficult, content, tests and etc. thanks to everyone in advance!
  5. Is it necessary to take ochem and biochem lab as pre-req for PA school? At my college, ochem lab and biochem lab are separated course, you have to pass ochem lab in order to take biochem lab. I barely survived ochem and I'm not good at doing lab work at all so I don't know if i should take the lab. My science GPA is really low already so I do not want to bring it down. Thanks!
  6. Hey! I have read a few forums concerning my topic but have not found anything directly related, therefore I decided to start my own forum. So I went to community college my freshman year and transferred to a state school for my sophomore year (currently in first semester). The pre reqs I took at cc were general bio 1 and 2 with labs and inorganic chem 1 and 2 with labs. I have researched a few PA programs around me and out of the 9 that I plan on applying to only 1 requires Orgo 1. Therefore I am taking that now with lab and working really hard to get an A to show an upward trend since I got C's in inorganic chem 1 and 2 at my cc. I struggle heavily with chemistry but am amazing at biology (all A's so far) so I'm trying to work on my chem courses. For the schools I am applying to a lot of them don't require either orgo like I said, but most do require biochem 1. I was planning on finishing orgo 1 this semester and taking biochem 1 either in the spring or next fall. The problem is my school requires orgo 2 as a pre req to take biochem 1. I emailed the chem chair explaining my situation and asking if the orgo 2 pre req could be waived and she completely refused saying orgo 2 is necessary to understand biochem. I already struggle with chemistry and do not want to have to take a course that is extremely difficult if none of my pa programs require it and I also don't need it to graduate and get my bachelor's. My chairperson told me to take biochem at a community college if I really did not want to take orgo 2. However, I am aware it looks bad to go from a CC to a 4 year and then take pre reqs at the cc during the summer. Also at the cc it would be a lower level biochem 2000 level and at my college it's 4000 level. So my question is do I let my GPA suffer even more and take orgo 2 just so i can take biochem 1 at my school, or do I take all my remaining pre reqs at my school and then take biochem at the cc and risk looking lazy and like I'm taking the easy way out on my applications to PA school?
  7. Hello everyone, I've been accepted into a program that does not require biochem but recommends you take it before starting the program. I have not taken the course but I am beginning to think I should. This question is primarily for practicing PAs and current PA students: Is biochem worth taking before starting PA school when considering the pros and cons below? UPDATE: I would only be able to take the lecture (3 credits) because the lab time does not work with my work schedule. Pros: I can go into PA school knowing I prepared to the best of my ability. Enrichment- Learning a new subject Cons: I would not have a break before starting PA school. I start in May. Increased stress I would have to pay out of pocket for the course. Also, I've heard Khan Academy has good videos for various subjects. Does any one have experience with that website? Thank you and I appreciate the responses.
  8. I see that organic isn't a major prereq for schools, but biochem is. For anyone who has taken two semesters of ochem and a semester of biochem: Is it possible to only take biochem having only taken ONE (the first) semester of ochem? I have to opportunity to skip ochem II but I'm not sure how much I'll need it in biochem. Thanks!
  9. Hi all. I need some advice from current PA students. I start PA school in the fall. Last week a great temporary job opportunity came my way that I really don't want to pass up, as it will be my last chance to make some decent money until 2015. The job would end a few weeks before classes begin. The problem is... I am in the middle of taking an Orgo & Biochem class which would interfere with the job. Since this class NOT a requirement for my PA program, I am very tempted to drop it and work instead. The only thing keeping me from dropping it, is if the Orgo/Biochem background will help me with pharmacology in PA school. Your thoughts?? Thanks very much.
