  2. Is college algebra (MAC 1105) hard?
    It definitely depends. I never actually took college algebra because I tested out of it. For any math class, seek out tutoring and/or help from your professor if you don't understand something.

  8. Applying to BOTH nursing and physician assistant programs?

    Other than a 'feel good about a completion of something', there is not much sense in getting an associates degree (there are few exceptions such as an ASN, which is different). I know some people...
