    That is a very good question. I just read up on the acceptance terms to the program. It said acceptance is based on making a C or better in Science courses, yet it doesn't clarify if after being accepted, whether you can have made a D or not. As well, it doesn't say whether re-taking the course will help or not. My suggestion is to wait until tomorrow and call the coordinator. Explain your situation and see what their suggestions are for you to do. My guess is that they will recommend taking summer class to re-take it, but that's merely a guess. Pat yourself on the got in, and that's more than most will do. As for your A&P II, I would go ahead and schedule a summer class if you can. You already know you'll be needing to re-take it to bring that grade up. You might as well get that out of the way now before it will be too late. If nothing else, check into it tonight and you can discuss that with the coordinator tomorrow. Good luck

    P.S. I've yet to get an email, so I will assume that I either am an alternate, or will be getting denied. Still hopeful since I've yet to get my email, but not going to freak if I don't. Fortunately, WSCC will be using my Spring semester classes and grades. They bring my GPA to a 3.5 and I got all A's this semester, so that's got to help. Still excited over getting an A in Microbiology.

    Freaking out here...anyone who didn't get accepted that received a letter??? I haven't received anything!! Oh no. What time did everyone get their email? After hours?
    I'm in the same boat. I had to go back through my email to make sure my application went through. It did, so now it's just a waiting game. Am curious to see what others have to say.

    I don't know what to do at this point except wait. Of course they send the emails toward the end of the day so that everyone doesn't call and complain for whatever reason... I don't know if I should just wait it out or call and ask. This is awful! I'm probably going to keep checking my email all night long, although I know nothing is going to show up until tomorrow.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. I only wish they'd used our grades this semester, as my GPA was 3.39 last semester and now 3.5. It's hard to say what they look for when they consider applicants. All you can do is your best and the rest is out of your control. As for your D, I'm confident that you'll be fine. Not sure if you took the campus class or online class. I took both A&P 1 & 2 online and missed A's in both by a couple points each time. I was so upset, but given how difficult online classes can be, I figure I did very well. If you took it on campus and made a D, I would consider the online class. Your labs are tied in with the lecture and I find that while they are difficult because you have to be disciplined, it was very convenient for me considering I work a lot. Everything is done online except for the midterm and final, of which you would need to take a proctored test on campus. It's a thought. Either way, good luck to you and again, congrats on your acceptance letter.

    P.S. Be glad you made the D at RSCC and not WSCC. I've applied there and they ALWAYS use the first grade in Science courses, so it would be pointless to re-take the class if applying there. They'd still look at the D and use that in their decision. Crazy, but that's how they do it.
