Okay, guys…I come baring good news! I know a lot of my posts lately have been related to NUHS and applying for the Chiropractic Medicine program. For good reason though, because it is something I am really excited about as well as passionate about. Well, I finally heard back from admissions and….
I got my conditional acceptance!
Victory is mine!
So what does conditional acceptance mean? Well, it means that my transcripts as of right now, as well as my GPA are good enough for enrollment. However, I am missing science prerequisites that need to be taken in order for me to get my official acceptance.
Here is a breakdown of how it works:
- I need to first complete 12 semester hours of my prerequisites.
- Once that is completed, I submit the updated transcript to the committee.
- They will review again to make sure I kept my GPA over a 3.0.
- I get my official letter of acceptance in the mail.
- Complete the rest of the science classes
- Being NUHS the fall of 2015.
Why 2015? Well, I still need to finish my Bachelor’s degree which I am set to graduate this December. In the state of Florida, even if you have your DC, you cannot practice Chiropractic Medicine without a Bachelor’s Degree. So this is something I cannot overlook, and must complete prior to formally enrolling in the DC program. 2015 is also the latest possible time frame of being completed with my science classes. I can always move that early if I need to, but I gave myself the most time to complete them to ensure I don’t overload myself with studying as well as work.
Ah yes, I’ve got quite the list of classes in my future.
In two weeks, I’ll begin the Summer semester of which I am taking my last elective for my business degree (!!!), and then I’ll also be taking College Algebra. For those who know me, you know that math is not my thing but I need to get through this class in order to even take my science classes. This will be interesting. Now that I am taking Algebra with a real goal in mind, I think it will be a lot easier to wrap my head around.
As you can see, all of the pieces are in place. I haven’t really even been able to celebrate my conditional acceptance yet, just because I have been so busy wrapping up the Spring semester. Thankfully, that is over and I’ve got two weeks off! I don’t even know what I am going to do with myself with all of this free time I have.
Oh, I know.
