    Oh and the Micro class does expire but its a 5 year time limit so your good. I would also suggest that you head to the highland lakes campus and talk to a counselor there about the program, and not anyone at the other campus because so much false information has been given out in the past.

    I do not have an A in government or sociology, so I doubt I would get in. I took government when I first went to college. I wasnt that serious.My sociology grade was a B.

    Well if those are the only two classes that you don't have an A in then you could always take them both in the fall or summer and still apply in time.

    WEll it is managable...but thats all up to you...I took Anatomy 1, anatomy 2, chemistry AND gov't the semester I was applying and got all A's except in chem I got a B but that doesnt count towards GPA anyway. I guess its all up to the person and the motivation that they have to work towards their goal. Whatever your decision good luck!

    You are allowed to take Anatomy 1 and Anatomy 2 at the SAME time?!

    you ARE allowed to do it if you go directly to the staff and have them sign a course override form and then turn it into the office....it is not recommended but I managed an A in both of them....but I HAD to take them both in order to apply to the program by December...without an A it wasn't possible in my eyes to make it...so I managed and came out with an A

    Wow! Mskarb, my hat is off to you. I only know of one other person who took I & II together and pulled off A's. Congrats!
