    Hey all :)

    I'll be graduating May '08 with a BS in Psychology, minoring in Biology. I plan on applying to medical school after I graduate.
    I made C's in Chem2 and Genetics and I was thinking about retaking these two courses at a local community college because it would be cheaper.
    Does this idea sound OK?
    I looked a little deeper in the community college's course listing and I found that they offered Anatomy as well as Microbio. I was thinking about taking these two as well.

    Thoughts?
    Thanks

    Been there, done that, no problem :thumbup:

    I have taken a few classes before and after graduating at a CC (including Micro, Anatomy, etc.) and I never had any problems. Just make sure it is an accredited instituition. Good luck :D

    call the schools you are applying to.... not all schools will "like" that you took them at CC's. I would check with the schools if you are interested in them
