Hey Pre-PAs' 

Trying to find a Genetics course 100% online to enroll myself in. The ones I've looked at either  don't offer it or it's class M-F. Please let me know !! And it'd be awesome if it was a community college per cost and a PLUS if it was in TEXAS. So again I need a Genetics 100% online class since that is my only class left in applying for PA Programs.

**I just came out of work so I feel like I'm messaging and then re-stressing the critical lab value to the attending hahaaa while typing this up.

Kind of random, but I'm taking it fully online through Yuba Community College in California. They even offer it over summer. Really cheap if you're a California resident (~$150), def higher for out of state unfortunately.

University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC) is completely online and I just finished Human Genetics there. If you're not a MD resident it can be kind of expensive, about $500 a credit and genetics is a 3 credit course. The class was super easy and I learned a lot so I think it may be worth it if you can afford it.

Cuyahoga Community College offers one online with no lab. Bio 2060. Looks like it would cost $813.57 For out of state residents. It fulfills the prereqs for the schools I am applying to after checking in with their admissions offices. Good luck.

I'm taking it online this summer at Doane University. Pretty expensive though. 

Hello!  I'm considering signing up for Genetics @ Doane.  How was it?  How many hours per week did you dedicate to studying/assignments?

@JuliaC I took this class online, and it was 6 weeks long at ASU (Not sure how that compares to Doane). It was hard. Hardest class I have taken thus far actually. Very doable but I will say I probably put in around 12-15 hours a week a a minimum. I think it was just difficult because my course was so short. Best of luck to you. It is doable!

It was pretty easy. I liked it because she gives the assignments/quizzes at the beginning of each week and it's all due Sunday at midnight. We learned primarily from the textbook chapters and Youtube videos that the professor posts. The workload is very manageable and I learned a great deal.

Thank you so much for this.  Very helpful!

      Hello everyone. I would like to hear your opinions on online lab classes due to the Covid-19 situation right now. So I’m enrolled in general chemistry with an online lab, and I am contemplating on dropping the class because I’m afraid schools won’t accept it. (Also waist of time and money) Thanks for your opinions.

      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.

      Hello all!
      Has anyone taken Pharmacology online at Doane? I'm exploring my options, but leaning more towards Doane University at the moment. ANY type of feedback regarding the course or other schools ya'll may have completed it at would be greatly APPRECIATED! 
      Thank you so much in advance

      I know that schools normally want you to take labs for prereqs in person. Has anyone heard from schools about labs being online due to covid and if those can satisfy the prereq requirement for classes requiring labs? Ex would be chemistry 1 lab or microbio lab. Not sure I'll have the option to take those labs in person, so I'm trying to see if the online version from my local university will work.

      Hello!
      I am a Pre-PA applying for the second time this cycle. 
      I took 3 science classes this spring to boost my gpa, which is what held me back last year. I'm worried it won't be enough, so I'm considering taking an online pathology course. I found that the University of Minnesota offers it. Has anyone taken this course from this institution? Did you take it else where? Is there another science online course you took in the summer?
       
      Thank you in advance,
      Karina
