Hello, wonderful MA/Boston-ites!!!
I have a question. I am wrapping up my prereqs -- but my academic record is not perfect. I got a C in A&P 1 and in Micro (I have been taking classes accelerated and while working over 50hrs/week), which... I'm not hugely proud of. As in everything else so far, including A&P2, (and I'm working hard to keep that up).
My question is, have I totally put myself out of the running for programs like MCPHS/MGH by not having all As? Should I re-take? For those who got in, were your grades ever less than stellar?
I have been doing other things to add value to my application... certified BLS/FA instructor, I work in human services now, have worked at a clinic and have a physician reference, volunteer at MGH for 2+ yrs, co-author of letter to the editor in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology... to try and show that I'm committed/motivated etc.
What do you all think?? I'm feeling a little discouraged...!
