    Hi jells1026, Genetics can be a bit challenging but doable with some online resources to help break down the most challenging aspects. Good luck!! For my fellow soon to be classmates...anyone have any input on the assessment kits we need to buy?

    I applied to the 2013 class but I wasn't able to finish all the pre-reqs so I was wait listed for 2013 but 2014 is actually a better start date for me so I'm just happy that I don't have to re-apply. I was just wondering, I'm taking an online genetics class and really struggling, did anyone else have a hard time with the genetics pre-req?

    This question is for students currently in the program...I know the program is very time consuming but I was wondering if there were any students with children? I have a young son and just wanted to see what peoples thoughts were on managing your time in the MEIN program with a young family?

    There are several students with children in our class....a few even with children <3 yrs old. It seems crazy, but really if you manage your time well you shouldn't have a problem. I don't have children but I do have 2 jobs so I can understand (somewhat) the time crunch. I would recommend having a few very reliable babysitters - I can't tell you how many times we've had something come up last minute for class or clinicals and they fully expect you to shift your schedule around it. Hope this helps!

    Hey guys. My name is Nelson Pinho Moreira. I made a Uconn Mein 2013 group on facebook. I'm hoping this group can help us keep in touch as we go through with the program. Most importantly, i hope we can help each other using this group.

    Nelson, I'm having trouble finding the group on Facebook. I saw the 2011 group and it seemed to be very helpful to them. I think this will be a great tool for us too

    I have a couple of questions about this program and was wondering if someone can clarify for me. I plan on attending an info. session but I'm trying to get an idea of how many prerequisites I need to take.
    I have a B.S. in Agricultural Economics, which included Biology w/lab, Chemistry w/lab and Statistics. I graduated from college in 2006, so not too terribly long ago. If these count, it looks like I only need to take AP1, AP2, Genetics, and Microbio, which are all available at my local community college. The only thing I'm still trying to figure out is Undergraduate Research Methods. I'm not seeing a listing for anything like this at the community college. What department would it be under? Is this a class that should be taken in person or can it be done online? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I took my research online through charter oak state college. At the info session they give you a list of acceptable transfer classes and equivalence info.

    If I remember correctly they will let you know a couple options as far as undergrad research. Which community college were you looking at? Also, they require that you have a B in the science courses. You might want to try the psych dept, that's where mine was taken at least...hope you get it all figured out!

    Thanks for the info! I'm planning to take my classes at QVCC, but there isn't anything resembling Research Methods in their course catalog, so I guess I will have to take that elsewhere. I hope that they will accept my stats. class from my undergrad. degree. I went back and looked and it's actually Business Statistics I and II that I took, but I'm pretty sure even at Uconn the Stats class listed is not specific to science students and more geared toward Business/Economics. I'm signed up for the Nov. 5th info. session at Storrs Can't wait to get started!
