Doane University vs UNE for Biochemistry


Recommended Posts

I’ve never taken a class through UNE online but I HIGHLY recommend Doane. I just finished their biochem course. The professor is awesome and works with your schedule in regards to assignment deadlines. I spent probably 1-3 hours per night on average on the coursework. I got a 97 in the class. You have one exam while the rest of the grades are assignments and discussion based learning modules. If you have any more questions please DM me!

Here's another recommend for the Doane course! I was in the same online class as Jchen14 earlier this year. The professor is very responsive and has set the course up in a way that will help you learn the topics. It is fast-paced, and there is a fair amount of work each week because the class is only 8 weeks long, but it's worth it. I did well in the class and enjoyed the fact that we had discussion boards. The book was also set up in such a way that it had a clinical/medical focus, so you could apply what your'e learning to real life.

I am registered for the course online through Doane this Fall, but have not received any other information.  Do we need to submit our transcripts or pre-requisites in order to take the course?  Or will we be emailed a link for the course page at some point?  Any information would be helpful!  Thanks.

I would think that most schools would accept it, but I would email the schools you're applying to and ask them just to make sure that they do.

I was told by a current 3rd year Union student that Doane’s Biochem class wasn't “challenging” enough to be accepted for pa school. I didnt look any further into it though so she could have been wrong. I took it at Union because they give preference to Union students.

Hi! I am enrolled in this course and I am excited! What was the platform of the online class like? Was there a lecture component or was it just teaching yourself?

Thank you!

Im not sure what PA school you are applying to but a lot of them don't accept online science classes. Have you checked into that? C8E7E308-CA14-4876-8682-6F9029856871.thumb.png.a264c6603849736f7168011010a7c4e3.png

I am looking for a good online school for organic chemistry and genetics and I heard that doane was a good school to take these.  I just wanted to know if this is true and if the tests are proctored or not.

Hey, i am registered for organic chem right now. they tests are not proctored for what i've heard. Are you registered for it?

I just took gen chem at doane and it was structured nicely. Not too overwhelming. i registered for organic chemistry with them as well and trying to find reviews as well. Are you registered with any?

If you need organic chemistry 1 and 2, I offer these courses online as I teach at North Central Missouri College.  All of my quizzes/tests/final are open-book, open notes, open internet, and you are encouraged to work with others.  I utilize the collaborative approach to focus on learning and not rote memorization.  I do my best to accommodate students as I offer all my courses each term.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks EEERR for replying.  Sorry it took so long for my reply, I got a little busy at work.  You said you took gen chem at doane.  How was the tests.  I am not registered yet but planning to be soon.

Oh of course! There were connect assignments every week and one test which is the finals. there are quizzes every week and the final is structured the same as the quizzes. The homeworks do take a lot of time so you have to be prepared to spend several hours on it. it is not timed and you can take a break and return to them when you're ready.

Hi! I took classes at both UNE and doane! 

I will say DOANE > UNE! all day, everyday.

UNE found itself to be more expensive when I took micro there because I had to buy ALL the materials. I mean, microscope, chemicals, all of it.

Doane had some really cool online simulated labs. 

Found doane to be easier. If anyone has any questions about specific classes, chances are I took them already. Feel free to shoot me a message

      Hi, 
       
      Just signed up for this forum. 
       
      I am currently a senior in my undergrad, I finish in the Summer 2021. My current cumulative gpa is 3.09 which is very low and for my science courses these are the grades I have made: 
      General Chem 1 & 2: B
      Biology 1 : B
      Biology 2: C 
      Orgo 1: C 
      Orgo 2: F(first time), C (2nd time)  
      Physics 1 & 2: A
      Genetics: B-
      Microbiology: D, I am going to retake. 
       
      I am taking Biochemistry 1 this spring 2021 and other upper-division biology courses where I hope to make As in. 
       
      I would like advice on what I should do to increase my gpa.  Should I enroll in a post-bacc program while getting PCE (through volunteering/shadowing or getting a job at an urgent care or hospital) or should retake the classes I received a C or below in, then start prepping to take the GRE and going through the application process. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.

      Hey everyone! 
       
      I was recently accepted into a program for fall of 2020. BIOCHEM was not a prerequisite, but I have been currently retaking the class in case I had to re apply. My acceptance is conditional based on having an up to date physical and that is It (I already submitted the physical). My question is, is It worth finishing up this class strong? Or should I stop putting effort into the class and relax until my program starts? I’m not sure what to do & don’t want to waste time studying if I do not have to! Thanks !!

      Hey all, 
      I live on the west coast, specifically California. I have been looking into Doane University or UC Berkley to take classes and retake some prerequisites. I was wondering if any one from California has taken classes or anyone else has taken these classes and applied to pa schools in CA? Were those classes accepted? 
      I have reached out to schools and they just say they accept classes from "regionally accredited schools" which I know Doane is, but is there a issue since these classes are online? 
      I know it can be best to take classes in person, however I work a full time job where I am not able to attend local community classes since they are during my work hours. 
      Any help will be appreciated! 
      Cheers!

      Hi everyone!
      I am enrolled in the Biochem course online at Doane University starting May 25. I was wondering if those who have taken this course before recommend the digital version of the textbook or the paper version? If I buy the digital version, will it be missing certain materials I will need for the course (ie. CDs, access cards)?
      Thank you in advance!

      Anyone know if UC San Diego extension courses ( https://extension.ucsd.edu/courses-and-programs/biochemistry) count towards most PA school pre-requisites. I need to take Biochemistry and Genetics over the summer. First time applicant and these would be my two in-progress courses. 

      UC San Diego's prices are pretty good from what I see. Unfortunately most schools that I e-mailed regarding pre-requisites say they can't provide info on if the course would satisfy their requirements at this time.

      Otherwise does anyone have suggestions for where I could take online classes that count towards most schools but still affordable? Currently out of work due to COVID-19.
      Any help is appreciated!
