Quote from LSU1
I had all prereqs, EXCEPT a 1 CREDIT LAB for micro biology. Thanks for the info. makes me feel a little better.
Degree from UNO, 1 credit Mirco Lab from Delgado (didn't want to, but it's close to home)
Don't feel bad, there is a good chance that you'll get in next semester. I don't know how true it is, but I've heard that a lot of people with high gpa's who are rejected the first time get in the second time, because they're usually finished their prereqs. the second time around. You are at an advantage, though, because you've already been to an interview so you'll know exactly what it will be like next time. My two interviews were with different people but were pretty much the same. Also, I think your odds are better because you have a degree. You may be in the small pool of people with previous degress who get chosen for the CARE program. I have two friends who applied with me this semester and they both got into that program because they already have degrees. As a matter of fact, one applied last semester with a 4.0 gpa but wasn't finished with the Micro class and she got rejected right along with me.
We were both shocked, but they put a lot of weight on prereqs, especially science ones and like I said I got my rejection letter one week before I finished the Micro. I was pretty upset :angryfire but I was already warned that my chances were slim because of the Micro. Anyway, I'm only rambling on about this to make you feel better because I needed someone to tell me these same things when I was rejected. Believe me, the time between now and the next application deadline will fly by. Until then, you should try and take some of the CoReqs. to get them out of the way before you start the program. Good Luck
