How do you retrieve results from a PDO Array using this format?

I've got to mimic the approach taken by some preexisting code in the way I retrieve the results from a SELECT statement. Generally, I use PDO::FETCH_OBJ just because it's familiar and straight forward. In this instance, I'm using PDO::FETCH_ASSOC and I'm stuck.

I've got a recordset of 32 rows. Here's my code thus far:

$selectTerms=$conn->prepare("SELECT * from terms order by discipline, term");

for($x=0; $x<$selectTermsCount; $x++)
      echo $selectTermsArray[$x]['term'].'<br>';

Right now I'm getting an error that says I've got an undefined offset. If I do this:

echo $selectTermsArray['term']

I get the first row repeated 32 times.

How do I need to code this thing so I get my rows documented correctly?
