Hi Everyone, I am currently trying to decide on the best postbaccalaureate program for me but have a few questions first: 1.) There are many 2 year programs that are considered full time (Columbia, Rutgers, UPenn), but if you break it down, it's really two full courses with lab per semester. Will med schools consider this an "easier" courseload considering that there are programs that finish in 1 year? 2.) If I do go into a 1 year program (Scripps, Bryn Mawr), I would have to take Gen Chem during the summer as it is a prerequisite to Organic Chem. I've heard that taking science courses during the summer is considered an easy way out medical schools and are frowned upon. Is this true? I'd really appreciate any insight out there. I've already applied to some programs but am trying to decide if I should start this fall with a 2 year program or if I should work another year and do a 1 year program. Thanks!
