Would this work? COSC GRE Out
#11
So, theoretically, your knowledge base will have to be the equivalent to roughly 30 credits in biology (half upper level) 30 credits in chemistry (half upper level) and 30 credits in physics (half upper level) plus the mathematical foundation that accompanies those fields. This is so flipping crazy, that if you manage to pull this off, you should go take the MCAT just for shits and giggles. Seriously. Wow. (of course you can't get into medical school this way, but wouldn't it be fun?)

Just wanted to post a quick reply. I just moved, so getting "schoolwork" done has been on the back burner. So far, I passed the English Composition with Essay CLEP and Analyzing and Interpreting Literature English Literature CLEP. Now, I'm working on College Algebra ALEKS and FEMA free courses!! I'm gonna study my bum off to pass my first GRE when they have another test (I haven't even looked to see the date yet).

You'll need to plan the timing of the GREs carefully. When I took the exam, it was only offered 3 times a year - April, October, and November.
AS in 2010 and BS in 2013 at Excelsior College - Transcripts and Costs
MS Biostatistics in 2019 at Texas A&M University - Graduate School

I am bumping an old thread just to share this gem I found on StudentDoctor [http://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/....1131874/]. If it's true (and I have my doubts), it's clearly someone who took all the GREs and then sent them to Charter Oak. (It's not the thread OP here because OP is a girl).

How would this even work on an AMCAS application?? I mean from what I've seen here COSC doesn't even equate the GREs to courses on the transcript..

Yes, it's possible, but not generalizable. Plus there are some very important missing details as well as underemphasized points.

One thing missing from the linked story is the person's MCAT scores. I know a doctor who crammed all science prerequisites into a short period of time. I think he had a prior bachelor's degree with uncompetitive grades. His MCAT scores were the highest of anyone I ever met. I strongly suspect the person in the linked story had exceptionally high MCAT scores, which tends to be supported by the claims about doing well on GRE subject exams.

The underemphasized point in the story is that the person did take science courses at a community college. As I've previously posted and provided links to medical school websites, testing out of required science courses is generally not allowed by medical schools.

As far as applying to professional school with GRE credits that don't specify grades or courses, it is likely to be treated as a block of pass/fail hours that don't affect the GPA. Here is the official link to obtaining credits from GRE exams at Charter Oak: https://www.charteroak.edu/current/acade...r-list.pdf

I am sure there is more to meets the eye, I just thought the story was... shall we say, interesting..

As to this " As far as applying to professional school with GRE credits that don't specify grades or courses, it is likely to be treated as a block of pass/fail hours that don't affect the GPA. Charter Oak is no longer as transparent about GRE credits as they used to be. "

do you mean the previous policy of just listing credits without subject for GREs is not what they do anymore?

Also, depending on the school you can test out of the intro classes via AP, but then they generally want to see similar hours in higher level coursework

My earlier post has been edited. Here is the correction: "Yes, it's possible, but not generalizable."

As far as your GRE question, my initial search attempts did not find the official list of GRE credits found here after doing some additional searching: https://www.charteroak.edu/current/acade...r-list.pdf Hopefully that will provide some clarity on what can be accomplished with GRE subject matter tests.
