The Southern California University of Health Sciences has an integrated science program that allows you to take prereq courses in 4 weeks on weekends so it's pretty tempting (and expensive :(). They state that they are accredited by WASC, but I'm not sure if the school will be a problem when applying. Anyone taken classes here or heard anything about them?

Did you ever hear anything about this program? I am planning on attending in July.

DO not apply to this program. I called numerous medical schools, and they said that prerequisites from a jc or 4 year university are much more reputable and competitive.

You take pre req science courses in 4 weeks and only on weekedns???? holy ****, that will either be hell on earth or a joke of class and not help with actual learning. I can see if you are retaking a course, but if you are learning it for the first time, you are gonna be screwed if you cant comprehend a topic. Orgo and Biochem will be intense, phsyics and chem will be tough and psych and bio will be doable, or at least these are my thoughts...unless its a joke of a class...

I took classes here, and the classes were intense (every Saturday and Sunday from ~8am to ~6pm). But, these classes only highlight the important topics and don't really delve into the material like a regular length class would. If you're sincerely pressed for time but have the cash to blow, go for it. Otherwise, I'd highly recommend taking regular courses.

I'd say these programs (it's probably the only one of its type) are best suited for those who just need to get pre-reqs for other allied health careers. I just can't see this being helpful for MCAT prep as you have no time to solidify a foundation in these basic sciences.
