As the title suggests I am a prospective non-trad applicant, about 5 years removed from my undergraduate days. I have a BS in Electrical Engineering with a cGPA of 3.45. My GPA did trend down my last semesters (with a few Cs), ironically due to my diagnosis (unknown at the time) of Addisons’s disease. I’ve been working since graduation as an electrical engineering, and looking to apply in June 2023.
As it stand today, I do have a handful of Chem courses, lots of Physics and Math on my transcript but its been ~ 5 years. I am currently enrolled in Chemistry via UC Berkeley’s extension offering and I plan on doing as much bio/chem as I can through them. I am planning on taking the MCAT next spring and I feel on a good day a 510 is possible. Here are the questions/concerns I have:
I don’t have any clinical experience. This is something I want regardless of school’s evaluations (because I want the experience for my own evaluation). Being that I work full time and COVID, what recommendations do you have?
Based on my work schedule, the only classes I can take now are either online, evening, or both. I have been accepted to two public universities as a post-bacc, but all of their class offerings in person are daytime. Is something online via a reputable institution going to hurt me? If so, what can I do?
Any advice you have?
