Grad School Myth #1: You need a related bachelor’s degree
Grad School Myth #2: You have to take the GRE
Grad School Myth #3: You must apply 1 year in advance
Yes please, I am also waiting for a post about the best way to take prerequisites. I am graduating from a 4 year university with a BA degree within a month. I want to go to occupational therapy for a masters degree or an OTD, but I am not sure how to take prerequisites (I didn’t finish taking them in undergrad). Should I take the prereqs at a community college (cheaper) or at a 4 year university (to make myself more competitive)? Because even though community college classes are cheaper and easier, taking prereqs at a 4 year university are worth the investment if that’s what will get me into grad school.
I sent you an email recently, I hope it helped!
Yes, I received your email and I wanted to thank you very much for your help. Your answers were very thorough, and they helped to clear up a lot of my confusion and misconceptions regarding the whole process of going back to school for grad school. I am so happy that I stumbled upon this website and will refer my friends here as well. Please keep up the amazing work and thank you again for everything!
Ainsley I am wondering the same thing about taking prerequisites at a community college vs a 4 yr college. I have already earned a bachelors degree and I am wanting to switch careers. Therefore, I am having to go back and take some classes.
I am so waiting for a post about the best way to take prerequisites. I have 6 from the Masters program and then many more on top of those that the community college is requiring (most of which are pointless and a waste of my time. Think algebra)
Hi MG, what degree are you getting at the community college, and what Master’s are you looking into? If you already have a bachelor’s degree (meaning you aren’t getting a full BA at the community college), you shouldn’t have to take prerequisites. So I’m sure your circumstance is unique in some way – or its a science type of degree. If you let me know the subject you’re getting a degree in, I can better assist you. :)
thank you, thank you, this is the best website. It really helped me.
Amee, I’m so glad to hear it. Thanks for writing!
