I did my genetics course at University of Phoenix online.. 3 units, no lab, Cost me $1200 and was 6 weeks long.. I got my grade and moved on.. It was accepted at every school I applied to including Western University where it's a prerequisite at.. Best thing to do is call and ask at the schools you're interested in applying to.

Just because the course and lab are separate credits/grades doesn't necessarily mean you can take one without the other.  I had many courses like this in undergrad, it's just how the system was set up, and you were required to take the lab with the lecture.  The only exception was if you needed to retake one part, then you could petition to just take lecture or just take lab.

 

Check with your school/course.  You may be worrying for nothing and have to take both anyway.

 

If you have a choice, just take the lab.  Better safe than sorry in the long run.  Labs are usually the easier part of a course and make for a nice grade fluff.

I wish I could've skipped genetics lab.  It was not a prerequisite for my program, but a requirement for my biology degree.  Breeding fruit flies and isolating isolating females while they were still virgins was extremely time consuming.  Plus it was group work and sucked because my group didn't pull their weight.

Did you require a prerequisite to take this course?

This thread is years old and Timon has not logged in for 6 months. Unless he/she is lurking with another account, don't keep your hopes too high for a quick response lol Maybe someone else will have your answer. So bumping it may still work out.

      Hey y'all so I am a sophomore in undergrad and in the process of just starting to get PCE, shadow, and volunteer hours and etc, but I am super stressed out because I am itching to start getting PCE hours except its so difficult while in school. I was thinking about becoming an EMT and working for 2 years after I graduate but I wasn't sure if being an EMT is considered PCE among most colleges, does anyone know? (I also tried to work as a caregiver over summer and that job isn't for me) 
       
      Also, I'm trying to compile a list of PA schools to apply to, so if anyone has any recommendations for schools on the east coast please let me know! 🙂

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      Hi there, my name is Vanessa and I just graduated with my bachelor's in February. I am looking to pursue into a PA program but not quite sure where to start. I am currently studying for the GRE and have about 250 internship hours done at an ENT clinic with an audiologist. I'm not sure in what I am doing and need any guidance or suggestion in what to do.

      Hi everyone! This is my first post so be forgiving if I don't have proper forum etiquette lol. So I am extremely nervous to apply this cycle, 2021-2022, because I feel as though my application is not going to be that strong. Here's what I have (keep in mind that I am a junior in college, so I have some more classes to take):
      cGPA: 3.27
      sGPA: right now I have a 3.1, but after this semester I am thinking that it will be around a 3.3
      HCEs: over 2,000 as a CNA
      I haven't asked for LORs yet, but I am sure that those I ask will highly recommend me (crossing my fingers!).
      I don't have as many volunteer hours as I would like, around 50, but I am currently working on them. 
      I am also involved on campus as an Orientation Leader, I am the President of Nature Club, the treasurer of a History club, and I am also apart of many other clubs, I am just not holding any positions in them. I don't know if this is relevant or not but I also take juijistu classes off campus. 
      I did have some mishaps happen throughout college, I earned a C- in human A&P, and I had to retake biochemistry. I'm not sure if I should retake human A&P to raise my grade and GPA or let it go. I am going to apply this cycle to programs that do not have a minimum letter grade, but I am honestly so worried that these schools won't even look at my application because of my GPA and my A&P grade. 
      Any and all recommendations are welcome, thank you!
