Credit/No Credit and Professional School Requirements

We have been in contact with a number of professional school admissions staff members, and they have been working diligently to develop a policy for this strange time. Although no school is the same, the consensus is that schools require letter grades if students have that as an option - which all Miami students do. Some institutions have gone on to requiring that all of their classes be offered as CR/NCR, and for those students, there is a section on the application where they will explain this in full detail.

Additionally, some of the schools that said they may be willing to accept CR/NCR have indicated that they would require proof that the student receiving credit for the course earned the equivalent of a C or better, which is not necessarily something Miami will be able to do, since our CR/NCR policy awards credit to students earning a D- or higher.

I understand that this is a stressful time for everyone, and most of you weren't planning on taking any online courses, but understand that there will be adjustments made to the application process over the next few years so that you aren't punished for what is out of your control. Admissions committees understand that they may see slightly lower grades for this semester, and they will take that into consideration. It is still important to do your best (it is proven that taking a course as CR/NCR can sometimes impact the effort one puts into a course), and once classes return to campus you can prove to them that the issue was related to the COVID outbreak by again earning the As and Bs to which you're accustomed.

Stay healthy,

Mallory-Wilson Spotlight

Grace Chaney
Taking the initiative is crucial to getting what you want, not only from your time here at Miami but also from life in general. Push yourself to see how much of your potential you can manifest into something tangible, and I think you’ll be surprised at just how much you're capable of!

Jeri Oranski
As important as it is to apply yourself and be dedicated to your studies, make sure to jump into new things. The more experiences you have outside your own discipline, the more you'll learn empathy and critical thinking skills that you will need no matter where your path leads.

Rebecca Wyma
My MWCHE preceptor­ship was also the most in-depth phys­ician shadow­ing experience that I've ever had thanks to Miami. Over the course of 5 days I shadowed Dr. Paul Gehring, an obstetrics and gynecology specialist in Tulsa, Oklahoma and a Miami alum. I stayed with him and his family, which was really incredible because I got to see how he manages his work and personal life. This made me see the real life of a physician and portrayed a lifestyle that I could one day see myself potentially having as well.

Sammi Marshall
The preceptor­ship, which is basic­ally an oppor­tunity where stu­dents shadow under practicing physicians to gain experience, was coordinated by one of my favorite professors, David Pennock, a professor of biology, my advisor, and director of the Mallory-Wilson Center. I can talk to him about pretty much anything!

Christopher Beecroft
Some of my best experiences have been working as a residence assistant in Stanton Hall, which houses the Premedical Living and Learning Community (LLC) — all students planning to head off to some sort of health professional school. It has been a great way to be a role model, someone who has taken the same steps as the freshmen and sophomores have.

Morgan Nguyen
I only had Dr. [David] Pennock once in a seminar class, but as the director of the Mallory-Wilson Center for Healthcare Education, he has been very helpful as my premed advisor. He has assuaged my worries by offering me confidential and calming advice about my interest in attending medical school after graduation. His premedical seminar helps you get acquainted with the nitty-gritty of applying to medical school.

Tiffany Campbell
Most recently, I did a 10-week summer internship through the Mallory-Wilson Center for Healthcare Education to do neurosurgery research and shadowing at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. I shadowed a neurosurgeon, Dr. Sudhakar Vadivelu, over the entire summer and worked on clinical research projects with him. This has been one of my favorite college experiences, and I'm actually still working there once a week, developing some manuscripts for publication, and I delivered a conference talk in DC in October!
