    Anyone else accepted @ Case Western in Cleveland

    I am accepted into the graduate entry DNP at Case for the fall 2009. I am thinking of specializing in oncology, although still open to see once I start. Sugarcube - look forward to meeting you! I am an international student from the UK, although live in Painesville on the Eastside. I am still finalizing funding, but plan on being there, very excited!

    SHE'S AT IT AGAIN!!!

    Peer reviewed research could be something like Science or Nature journals (or any journal to do with research on the topic) - you can probably find this on the internet, then just claim you found it in the journal!! I have no idea why they would say no internet, when I was writing my thesis I used the internet all the time - far more effective as long as you know the right sites - your teacher would be better off teaching you how to effectively use the internet than just banning it

    SHE'S AT IT AGAIN!!!

    Here is my 2 cents, completely off the top of my head, so take it for what it is worth!: 1. Carrier molecule 2. enzymes 3. oxidizer 4. oxidation/reduction reactions or reversible reactions Hope that helps

    What does your spring 2009 class schedule look like...?

    I am taking: A&P II with lab Lifespan Development Statistics Fitness and walking (had to have 12 credits!) Should be ok, less than last semester, only in college Monday and Wednesday (9am to 8pm, but big break where I can work for online courses). Means I can watch the kids more, so hubby can work more!!!!

    Microbiology - Fall 2008

    wooooooooooo hooooooooooooooooo made an A in micro!!!!! Despite asthma attack, got 90.6% overall, then as I was the only student to get an A (out of 72!) he adjusted and I wound up with 93.6%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also managed to get into urgent care yesterday, and weilding all my medical records from the UK got a prescription for inhalers, so can breathe again after 4 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So got straight A's in A&PI, micro, psych and sociology for the semester, now for the holidays!! Have a great christmas everyone!!!

    Microbiology - Fall 2008

    OK I am freaking out!!! Have my final tomorrow night - got psych, sociology, A&P I out of the way - got 100% in all! But, with micro final tomorrow, low and behold, my body decides last night to give me a major asthma attack, so today I am exhausted. Praying my micro grade does not pull down my average for health reasons, as most of today has been spent sleeping and recovering!

    Stats courses

    Thank you for all the advice, and based on my own concerns also, I think I will do a classroom stats course! Been figuring out my timetable today and it should work out. I will be doing A&P2 Monday and Wednesday 9-12, then Stats is 6-7.50 the same evenings. As I have to have 12 credits, and only have 11 of pre-reqs left, I have decided to do a 1 credit walking class (how random!!!) and that falls from 1-2pm the same days. So hour for lunch, an hour of walking, then I have 4 hours until my evening class in stats, where I can do my work for Lifespan development online!!! That way, hopefully I can get most of my work done in college on Mondays and Wednesdays and have the weekends, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at home with the wee man! Thank you all once again!

    Stats courses

    Hi All, Just wondered if anyone has any advice, I am going to be doign a 4 credit Stats course next semester, and am considering online - good or bad do you think? I will be taking A&PII and Lifespan Development concurrently, and am thinking about lifespan and stats online, as this semester I really missed my 2 year old!!! I am not too worried about online for lifespan, but slightly worried about how hands-off it will be for stats, bearing in mind I have done no math for a decade! I placed into the class, but am lost as to whether instructor based classes may be more effective. Help!!!! And thank you!

    Fall 09 hopefuls?

    Hey all, I am actually in a weird position - have been accepted for CWRU's grad entry DNP, but still have pre-reqs and a few other bits and bobs to get out of the way (I applied a year early because that way I could sort out all my visa requirements in one go!). This semester I have studied A&P I, Microbiology, Sociology and Psychology - so far got an A in all 4. Next semester is A&P II, Lifespan Development and Stats (eeekk!), need a 3.5 in pre-reqs I believe to retain my place!

    Microbiology - Fall 2008

    If you are confused on DNA and protein sysnthesis, try a good search - there are loads of websites with animations, lots of information is out there, explained from the most simple to more complex. Regarding your questions: In DNA - triplet (three nucleotides) --> transcribed into RNA (codon) --> translated into an amino acid sequence, where 3 nucleotides = 1 amino acid. An anticodon is present on t-RNA and is used by the ribosome (which reads the DNA and adds the appropriate amino acid to the peptide chain). It corresponds to the codon on the mRNA. Hope that helps!

    To the girl who was texting all through chemistry class....

    I concur, I get distracted so I make copious notes, even if I know the topic inside out! If nothing else, it helps me to know EXACTLY what was covered in class!

    To the girl who was texting all through chemistry class....

    The teacher in our micro class got his own back today on several who are late consistently, he gave us a quiz at 9am sharp, it finished 10 minutes later, and he would not let anyone who wandered in with their coffee's later do the test!! I am guessing punctuality will improve! I have noticed that the micro and A&PI classes I am in are very attentive and sociology and psychology are full of people chatting/texting, so next semester I am doing all my courses other than A&PII online. People keep asking me how I am getting 100% in every class (other than micro, where I have a 95% average right now). I tell them I actually listen in class, make notes and ask if I am confused. I do not dedicate too much time out of class to studying, but probably do average about an hour a day overall to my 14 credits. By listening and being attentive I don't need to study so much outside class, that simple!!!!

    Anatomy & Physiology Fall 2008

    Congrats on the awesome score!!! We have just started the bones (seems my teacher does everything in a different order!) - do you have any suggestions?

    Microbiology - Fall 2008

    Looks just like my last exam too - I concur with the PP that flashcards are the way to go. Also learning the roots of the names (e.g. cocci - round, bacillus - rod, strepto - grape like cluster) is useful as it refers to a lot of the names. Flashcards of word definitions (glycocalyx, gram positive, gram negative, virus structure etc) might be useful.

    Anatomy & Physiology Fall 2008

    Well, for the CNS it was really a case of name the parts. I went over lots of diagrams with the names blanked out. For the PNS I think it was really important to have the fundamentals then build off of it. In the test there were lots of questions related to the nerves and tracts, and it was important to make sure you were straight on exactly what did what, as if you mixed things up it messed up lots of questions (1/2 the class failed the test). Also there are lots of useful mnemonics out there for the cranial nerves - I used this, and wrote out all the cranial nerves, their origins and functions on the back of the test before I started and was able to use that for a lot of the questions! I also drew out the main spinal tracts so I could just refer to them - that way the questions did not confuse me, as all the tracts were right there. Hope that helps!
