I am going to enroll in Patho online (HCR 240) my options are Rio Salado, Glendale Community College, Gateway Community College or Phoenix College offers a hybrid option. It doesn't say when the class meets for the hybrid portion of the Phoenix college class, so I am not sure if that will work with my work schedule. Does anybody have any recommendations for which class is better? I just finished Micro through Rio, which was not to bad, but the mid-term and final where typical of Rio, so I am interested in finding out any info about the other schools formats for online classes. What are their tests like? Do they require a lot of essays or homework? Sometimes with Rio, I felt like I spent so much time writing essays, that I lost a lot of time that could have been better used actually studying for the crazy midterm and final.

I'm not familiar with any of the schools you've mentioned... BUT... fyi... online programs will make you write a LOT more essays than on-campus classes. It's one way they can measure how much time you spend studying to earn the credit hours.
That's my two cents.
