    I am currently at a community college studying to be an RD. This video really helped me but I find that it is a long road of sciences is there any other advice to make it easier. I want to make sure I have good grades but it isn’t always so easy to get there.

      Yeah the sciences are really important when it comes to nutrition. It definitely wasn’t my strength, so I had to work extra hard to make sure I grasped all the science. If you know that science is just not your thing, I recommend thinking about other career options. You can also take a few science classes now and see how you do- then go from there. Good luck!!

    Hi there! I love your videos and podcasts and find them so inspiring. I was actually wondering if you had any tips for someone with a bachelors in something other than nutrition. I’m a recent graduate with a BA in Psychology, and I’m just wondering what my options are for getting the required coursework done. For example, would you recommend a post-bacc or a masters? Thank you!

      Hey! I actually did my BA in psych too. You have to take prerequisites to then be eligible for a masters program. I took 4-5 pre-reqs at the local community college, and then applied for the masters program. Each program has different prereq requirements so look into the ones you’re interested in to see what those are. You can probably transfer a few of the classes you took in undergrad to cover some of the prereqs
