Are online/hybrid classes a good idea?

Recommended Posts

I have completed my bachelor's degree in Biology, but since I was pre-med back then, I didn't complete the anatomy and physiology course and now have to complete it at a community college. I also have a full time job and was hoping to take anatomy and physiology in a hybrid setting (online lecture with in person lab). Is this a good idea? I've been looking at schools websites and some don't care, some said "considered on an individual basis," and some won't accept it. Am I limiting my chances too much? I want to apply mostly west coast and surrounding states.  I also have to take statistics and I hope to apply for Fall 2020.

Thanks!

I think I would make a list of the schools you plan to apply to and see how many will/won’t except this. I’m personally not a fan of things that are “considered on an individual basis,” because it leaves you not knowing exactly what they will/won’t do with the class. I think after making the list, you should have a clear picture what is best for you based on how many schools you can apply to.

I found that it was a non issue. I took multiple classes where the lab portion was in person and lecture was online and nobody ever questioned it.

I specifically had two quarters of A&P hybrid.  It worked fine.

      It looks on their website and on the CASPA prerequisites page like you have to take anatomy&physiology I and II...is this true? I took a separate human anatomy class and a physiology class - they weren't combined. I don't want to apply if this will not fulfill the requirement. Also, it says "Two semesters of human anatomy & physiology with laboratory (from a biology, physiology, zoology department, or an allied health program)"...my courses are from my school's kinesiology dept...will this not work?
      Thanks, I appreciate your feedback.

      Im curious about the difficulty of the course and wether or not the exams/finals are open note/internet. and if so, is it easy to find solutions online to the questions along with good explanations.

      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!
