I received acceptance to a post-bacc program where the tuition is dirt cheap, however, they have an unfair system whereby they cannot guarantee that you will be able to sign up for science classes. I was told it will be extremely difficult to register. I am already 27 years old and would like to start ASAP. With that being said, would it be worth it to start a post-bacc program at a more expensive university such as NYU where I am guaranteed to register for the classes that I need vs. taking a gamble and waiting on the cheap post-bacc program? I think I know the answer but would like to hear from people who have experience in the post-bacc world.
