Could anyone who has completed the radiology technology program at Paris Junior College give me a brief overview of their experience and if the program was very difficult to get accepted in to? I have a few college credits but I do not have all of the "suggested" classes that they have listed on their website to complete before the program. Is it possible to get accepted even though I do not have these "suggested" classes done? I have a 4.0 from all of my other credit hours.(If so, I was hoping to apply for this upcoming term.) Thanks for any info you can provide!:)

You need to sit down with an advisor at the campus and they can give you an overview. They go by points, and references, and interviews. An advisor can give you all of the details and help you get on track. All are very helpful and willing to discuss this with you.

To become a radiologist, you have to persue an Associate's degree. Therefore, you have to have all of the classes that are required for an Asscoiate's Degree. Space is limited in the radiology class, and the spots are very sought after, so this is why they mandate that good grades and proper credentials are required. Though not as hard to get into as PJC's nursing program, radiology is a competitive area.

I believe you mean radiology tech... you need a little more than an associates degree to become a radiologist...

Are you kidding me? SERIOUSLY??? If you need info about the success rate, go STRAIGHT to the college admissions counselor - they are paid to give you that info. Why would you muddy it up in TOPIX.
Paris Junior College is an institution we should all be very proud of. Many communities our size WISH to have a JUCO. Thank goodness our forefathers were wise enough to petition long ago for our great college.

I'm in the Radiology Program at PJC now and first of all you cannot apply whenever you want, applications are accepted in September. You must have all of the recommended classes, because like someone said it is a point system, and without the classes you dont have the points. Take the rest of the classes you need and if you really have a 4.0 apply in September and you shouldnt have much of a problem getting in. You also need to observe for a few days to make sure it is what you want to do. But the PJC RT program is a good program.
