Question by moryteza_hajkarim: How can I get a full studentship from an American/Canadian university in PhD courses?
I am not a home student. I have MS degree in Digital Signal and Image Processing from England. Relevant PhD courses could be Neuroscience, Electrophisiology, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, Machine Vision and stuff. My GPA is not good, round 2.5. I would be very thankful if someone could help me.

Best answer:

Answer by ownpool
You cannot be admitted to a US Ph.D. program in your field with less than a 3.5 GPA. Things in Canada are probably similar.

Question by sear_squid: If a student goes to a community college, will they need to take science and math courses?
I am terrible at science. If I take physics and pre calc next year (senior year) will I have to take them at the community college (where I plan to go)? Thanks.

Best answer:

Answer by Mrs. LT
You should talk to that particular council @ college, because you will have to take a test with math, english where it will place you were you need to be. depending on your major you may have to, but depending on your school they may pass it as prerequisite.

Question by Dave Cvil: What High School Courses to Take for Colleges?
I have a question regarding which classes would benefit me for higher-ranked colleges? I am planning to major in Sciences as I want to be in the medical field when I grow up. At my high school, they have a Medical Science Academy, where they have specific electives and courses that each student enrolled in that program is required to take. I am skeptical at whether I am at a disadvantage to colleges due to the nature of these courses. These classes limit my ability to take AP electives that regular students who are not in this program are eligible to take.

In freshmen year, they require you to take an Honors Science 2.0 Class
Sophmore Year – Honors Neuroscience & Genetics,
Junior Year – Honors Human Anatomy & physiology,
Senior Year – Honors Pathology, Honors Forensic Science, and Honors Sports Medicine & Athletic Injury
All these classes are required electives for the students in this program. Although these classes are “Honors”, they are given a 20% AP weight.
My main concern is whether colleges would prefer these courses or all the other AP courses that are out there for students. I feel as if these classes would put me at a disadvantage for Ivy League or Top Colleges out there.
Electives that would be available for me to take without this program would be: AP Psychology, AP Macroeconomics, AP Microeconomics, AP Statistics, Honors Java, etc.
I am confused whether I should stick with this program because it does give a 20% weight, and have many medical science courses. However, this limits the ability to take other AP courses, and I don’t know whether taking other AP courses would show colleges that I am diverse in my course selection. With this program , I am not allowed to take these AP courses due to scheduling conflicts.
Another question is whether this program will benefit me? This program was very selective and needed an application process, and I would like to know if this program will be beneficial to me in admissions for higher colleges because its a diverse program & many colleges are looking for diversity now?

Would I be in a better advantage keeping with this program, or should I take the normal high school route?

Best answer:

Answer by John
I think the program and courses will help you stand out to a staff shuffling through application papers all day. As long as you can get related APs like bio,chem, phys then you should be fine.

Question by .: Is this science curriculum ok? What science courses are totally required?
In ninth grade I studied abroad so the science class was just called science (in Argentina), I couldn’t pick the science course I wanted to take.
So for my freshman year, I did ”Science”. For my sophomore year, under the advice of my counselor, I took Biology-LAB, for my junior year I am taking Chemistry and for my senior year I want to take environmental science or physics. Which should I take?
Also, what science courses are mandatory? Can I just skip chemistry and go for physics in my junior year and ES for my senior?
Thank you!

Best answer:

Answer by Nick
The “mandatory” science courses differ from school to school, but i think you have to take atleast 2 out of the 4 that you mentioned. Talk to your counselor and see what courses they offer. Biology is the easiest in my opinion then chem and then physics. And about skipping courses, again, you have to talk to your counselor, but most schools have you take them in order until senior year. It depends. Get all the course info and make a decision on which courses you are interested in.

Question by Caleb: What college courses best benefit me for becoming a Naval Aviator?
This question has been asked several times and I have looked all over and the answers that are repeated over and over are very general. Such as you need to major in a hard science like math, physics, etc. Or they say, well they mostly want someone with a degree in technology. Etc.
Can anyone give me a better, more in depth answer than these ones.
If you look anywhere on the internet about becoming a pilot it says “you need a bachelors”
What subject would best benefit me to get a degree in?

Answer by Bekey
Your D*** will be like I if you are allowed to clean-sub-clean Air Force One.

Question by Mandi: Preparing to become a Pediatrician, What courses should i take as a freshman in college?
I’m a senior in high school, and I know I should pick a major in the science area, but there are so many options! Neuroscience, biochemistry, biology etc. Which is best for me to choose when I go to college?

Best answer:

Answer by PE2008
Don’t bother thinking about requirements for Pediatrics until you at least know you are a reasonable candidate for Medical School.

Your Major in university should assume you will not make it into Medical School (most students don’t make it). So, you should choose a Major which allows you to slot-in pre-med courses easily and also leads to a good career if you don’t make it to Med School. In my view, the best two Majors for these requirements are:
Bioprocess Engineering
Chemical Engineering

Question by Serenity: What sort of courses must you take to become a Psychiatrist?
You need an understanding in Psychology, obviously.
You also need Chemistry, I’m sure – but what sort of Chemistry? What would you learn in the class?
And I’ve also heard Neuroscience – but what is this, exactly? Is that the chemistry of the brain…. or…..?
I’m curious about what it takes to obtain this career.

Best answer:

Answer by White Russian
You have to become a medical doctor first so take Chemistry and Biology in school for a start.
