    Never heard of it. Just be aware that it's two years. It also might be a glossy cover on what is basically a do-it-yourself operation. I would ask some questions about the alleged MCAT prep and the individualized advising -- they could just mean they give you a coupon for a Kaplan course and you have access to the regular undergrad pre-med adviser. I've seen that a lot. Also, you might be a tad leery taking your pre-med prereqs at a college that doesn't offer a chemistry or physics major, if you have another option.

    Just a few things to think about.

    I've never heard of them...and I'm living in the Bay Area. You'd want to do some research on them first, for sure.

    Thanks for the input.
    I know Mills and SFSU have decent reputation. Berkeley extension would be a better option for me as I work full-time, but I have read a lot of negatives on this forum. The reason I looked at this NDNU was because it's close to both my home and my office.

    Totally valid. I just have learned to always keep a skeptical eye about these things, but it sounds like you're doing your research and asking all the right questions so this NDNU program might well indeed be great for you. Just make sure you get all the answers you want before you sign on to anything.

    Good luck.
