COMP offers an optional 3-week "pre-anatomy" course at the end of June. I have never taken an anatomy course, and I haven't been in a classroom in 7 years (BA 1992), so I'm really not sure where my study skills lie at this point. I took the MCAT in 4/98 (27) studying after work without too much problem. Do you think taking this pre-anatomy course would be to my advantage? It would mean quitting my job a couple of weeks earlier than planned and relocating in a hurry. Thoughts?

I'm not sure that startin' school earlier than you need is a good idea. I won't start school until Aug. myself.
I can see your point dough - if I hadn't taken anat/phy in undergrad - I would've most likely ended up taking the course myself. The people from Western told me during the interview that for those who had never had anat/phy, it would be a real advantage to take it before the real thing.
PS: congrats on your acceptance. http://www.medstudents.net/bbs/smile.gif
i would highly recommend it...not unless you really NEED the money, why wouldn't you want to? i bought the books yesterday and it is a lot of material that is introduced. i would suggest buying the book and looking through it if you're not gonna take the course, especiallly since you haven't been in school in a while. anyway, congrats and hope to meet you soon.
