I have an AAS in biotech and a BA in general studies. I'd like to go to grad school and I received an above average score on the GRE, but I'm not confident this will be enough to get into a graduate program. I have this idea that the admissions committee would just laugh at my application because the majority of my science courses were from a junior college. I think I am up for graduate level studies, but how can I show this to the grad school?
Have an Answer?
Courses from accredited schools with a C average or better are fine; don't worry. What was you major and mine for your BA?..You don't give me enough info to guide you. Look at the book "Occupational Outlook Handbook" available at most libraries and examine a few catalogs from schools you might be interested in and check out their entrance requirements.
A good score on the GRE is helpful, but your GPA is equally important, say about a 3.5, depending on the school.
If you finished up your BA and scored well on the GRE, there is no reason that graduate schools should think any less of you taking science courses at junior college. In fact, taking junior college courses is very common, especially with the increasing cost of education.
You can use part of your personal statement to highlight your journey, maybe say a bit why you chose to do junior college and how you have grown so much since then.
If having those junior college courses on your transcript is the only thing making you doubt your application, I'd say put that out of your mind and submit that application!
