  • FAQs | Millikin University
    GPA and the standardized test scores in their evaluation of your ability to be successful in their programs 2 If I drop a class does that look bad No Not if it is an isolated case Professional schools are looking for evidence that you can handle a rigorous academic load AND have an active campus life However if you routinely drop classes or show a consistent pattern of poor performance your academic record will raise the question of whether or not you can handle the rigors of professional school and your estimation of your particular time management skills 3 Should I repeat a class required in which I earned a C An isolated C is not the end of your prospects for a career in health care and the course should probably not be repeated Consistent C work will not produce a competitive GPA and that is another issue entirely If you have received a C in a course AND you have satisfactory knowledge of the subject then you should probably take an advanced course in the same subject matter For example if you received a C in Genetics or Cell Biology rather than repeat either of these courses you should take Molecular Genetics and Advanced Cell Biology and earn A B grades In the application process all grades from all institutions attended must be reported The same is true for admission exam scores 4 Why should I take courses that I am not interested in even if they are part of my major Professional schools are looking for students with a broad background in both the humanities sciences and the liberal arts If you are a biology or a chemistry major or if you are a history or music major the faculty have determined that there are a certain number and type of courses that you should take in order to have adequate knowledge of that particular field You may feel that they have no relevance to your proposed career However it is wise to recognize that people and circumstances often change and what you may regard as irrelevant now may be very important later on in life In addition our goal is to prepare you for professional success That means that you must learn and understand the fundamental concepts that accompany the discipline of your major 5 What GPA and admission exam scores do I need to enter professional school Your grades and admission exam scores are used to assess your academic potential in professional school and your ability to obtain a license to practice your particular form of health care There is no magic cut off for either parameter However you should strive to present a balanced picture between your GPA and your admission exam scores Your scores need to be about the same as the previous years ENTERING class not the national average for each school that you apply to In general a GPA of 3 5 3 7 with higher numbers in science will be sufficient For medical schools MCAT composite scores of 500 are competitive DAT academic average of 20 is competitive GRE scores of 150 verbal 150 math and 5 in writing are competitive Individual consultation with the program director will provide additional information 6 Can I take admission exams multiple times Yes with some limitations that are set by each organization that provides the exam Most of the programs that administer admission examinations limit the number and timing of repeats In addition professional schools do not look favorably on students who take the exams multiple times The very best plan is to prepare well and take the exam ONCE when you are ready It goes without saying that all basic course work must be completed prior to taking the admission exam There is no point in taking the MCAT for example if you have not completed physics or organic chemistry This applies more or less to all admission exams with the exception of the GRE general test 7 How can I prepare for these standardized exams The first and most important act that you can take in preparation for admission examinations is to read read read All exams will test your ability to analyze information quickly and consistent reading outside of your textbooks is the best way to prepare for these examinations Read a variety of materials fiction and non fiction material in the field of health care the newspaper high quality magazines and any kind of literature The more sophisticated the prose and the vocabulary the better off you will be You should set up a reading program for the summer using suggestions from our English Department as well as from the program During the summer months you should read at least one book a week in addition to a daily newspaper You should continue reading during the semester but somewhat less because of your course load In addition you should be able to demonstrate competency in mathematics We recommend at least a semester of calculus for all students who aspire to professional school graduate programs You should also prepare diligently and intensely for the exam Millikin offers a four semester review in addition to specialized reviews for each of the major standardized exams Consult with the program director on which review is appropriate for you For medical dental and optometry students review begins during the second semester of your freshmen year Not only do you begin preparation for the admission exam but also you build a learning community through your participation Students who need to take the GRE will also participate in review as well as an intense course but the timing differs from the first group 8 How many organizations do I need to join to demonstrate leadership The number of organizations that you participate in is not crucial the quality and depth of your commitment to the organizations is important You should spend a semester evaluating campus organizations and during your second semester begin to participate A small
