So I got accepted to do a second bachelor’s in health science full-time this fall! I’m pretty excited about it. So here’s my question. This college accepted the D from my undergrad for zoology (and, ridiculously, the D for chemistry and C- for calculus) for transfer. So I don’t have to take it, but I could clearly use a refresher. And I took zoology in 2001. OLD premed
The issue is that the college I’m attending is really, really easy. Their zoology course actually uses the Campbell freshman bio book and content-wise is on par with my alma mater’s freshman bio course. In terms of pace, it’s below par. I really don’t want to spend a semester taking a class that I don’t need if I can learn the content over the summer by reading the book. I do plan to get a more in-depth book like the Hickman to supplement.
So my question is, if I’m confident that I can brush up on zoology over the summer, would it look bad not to retake it as long as I do well in the subsequent upper level bios? DO grade replacement is dead, and transfer credits don’t count toward the new school’s GPA. Thoughts?
Regarding chemistry, I’m definitely retaking that. For over a decade I’ve had a recurring nightmare that my college degree is going to be revoked because they made a mistake and the D in chemistry should not have counted toward graduation. It’s an awful dream lol.
