    I have a classmate that works full time and two that work part time and they are able to keep on top of things. They just have to be more dedicated.As far as studying beforehand, I don't think it will help. Just show up on day one and be prepared to write a lot of essays.

    I am applying today to the program. Does anyone know when the next cohort starts? From this board it looks like april. I have a bachelors in PR/ Advertising and I made an 87 on the TEAS (but I have a low overall GPA). Anyone that starts this week, please let me know how it is. Congrats and thanks!

    I took A&P through straighterline and they accepted that. My enrollment counselor actually referred me to Straighterline. However, that I know of they are looking for biochemistry as a prereq not chemistry so I am not sure they will take the chemistry class. They will let you take biochemistry as part of the nursing program if you have all the other prereqs done. I wouldn't spend the $ I'd try and take it through WGU. That's what I did.

    I copied this from their admission requirements section

    Biochemistry - This is the sole science prerequisite that may be taken at WGU. All others must be met by providing transcripts with transfer credits equivalent to WGU requirements.

    Hope that helps
