Hi, I was just wondering if any of you had any advice on the following. I am just about to register for next semester to finish my pre-reqs. I could take my pre-reqs at the local community college. It would be much easier for me as it is closer, or I could drive an hour away to the state university to take them. Has anyone taken pre-reqs at community college? Would this put me at any disadvantage? Do med schools prefer you to take pre-reqs at a University? I would really appreciate some help on this one as I can’t get the admissions office at USF to answer my e mails. I guess they are up to their eyes in applications. Thanks so much
when i was in undergrad, i didn’t do all the med school prereqs. cause i was pretty sure i didn’t want to go to med school. :rolleyes:
so now, i am taking the ones i didn’t do before at JC. there is a great university in my town, and several other colleges in my area, but they all only offered science courses during the day. i work a 9-5, so i needed night or weekend classes. so JC was really the only option for me.
and it seems to be ok, cause i just got an interview at a great med school!!! :rotfl:
I am currently taking my first and second year pre-requs at a local college. At first, I was convinced that I had made the wrong decision and that I should have gone to University right off the bat. I was wrong. This is how I knew:
– I saved $2200.00 in tuition fees this year ALONE.
– I got almost all used textbooks.
– There are 25 students in my first year Biology class, but the course is not at all lacking.
– I am on a first name basis with most of my profs.
– My profs know when I don’t come to class.
– All my classes are two minutes walking distance from each other.
If it works for you, go to college. This transition is so much easier because I took this route.
