One thing i must add is that the 4.0 GPA is from a community college. Already had a foreign degree but went to a CC to do the prerequisites again and took bio-chem and genetics at a 4year college. I thank God for the acceptances i do have because i basically have foreign and CC credits. do have some volunteer work but no research. i owe this all to God almighty who has been with me every step of the way. To all of you despairing out there hand everything over to our heavenly father and he will make a way. if he is for you , who can be against you ?
