I have a friend at work who just finished at Bethel and she had nothing but great things to say about it. I just filled out the online app and am waiting on my transcripts to go through. I had micro but not statistics or any sort of math, will I need to take those before getting in? And the papers make me a little nervous. It's been a long time since I've had to write a paper, perhaps I should take a refresher course?
Thanks for any details you may be able to give.
If you were able to write the above, without massive re-editing, you shouldn't have much trouble with the papers. Yes there are silly APA formatting rules to follow, but they give you an overview in the first course. It's my understanding that those who struggle with the papers have had difficulty with English courses in the past. You need a fair sense of basic grammar
. Also, some have difficulty with the assignments because they don't read the directions clearly and write papers about the wrong (though somewhat related) topics. I.e. if the instructor asks you to debate the benefits of two different opposing topics, and you only write about one of the topics that could be a problem. If you have decent communication skills you won't have much trouble.
If you want to give me your email I can send you a few examples of the papers I've had to write.
As for statistics, I suggest you contact an admissions advisor and ask. I don't know what the pre-reqs are for sure.
