Not sure what the top-10 med school comment means...Don't take it over. Just do well in your future classes and you'll be OK academically unless, of course, you are shooting for a top-10 med school.
I have heard that some places won't accept general sciences sequences that are taken at community colleges. Mainly because people could just do those reqs at a community college hoping for an easier time.
boston college and case western dont take cc credits
just do well in upper division and 30+ on mcat...
Well boston university doesnt, but I got into both the Case Western program and the Cleveland Clinic program with prereqs from a community college. So I would say that if they think you are good enough Case doesnt really care.
God, I get so tired of that Boston U myth. Folks throughout SDN seem to believe that there are "lots" of schools that don't take community college credits, yet no one yet has been able to provide verification of a college that does not accept CC credits for those who are enrolled full-time at a community college pre-transfer.And neither does Boston U. I called there and they said that the only time they don't take CC credits is when you're already enrolled at a four-year school and taking CC credits on the side.
Who's "they"? Assuming BU, they do not accept CC classes for prereqs unless you were a FT CC student before transferring. Unless Psych and Precalc are requirements at BU, I wouldn't sweat it.They don't accept just core science prereqs or any classes? I took Psych and Precalc at a cc over the summer but theyre not core classes and I only needed Precalc as a prereq for Calc in the fall, which I got an A in at my regular 4 yr university. Is that ok?
All college level classes, including CC classes, are counted in your overall GPA and should be put on your transcript. I say this as someone going through the application phase with a two year degree from a CC.
What are "non-college level classes"? If you mean high school coursework, no it doesn't appear. If you mean non-college classes at a rec center or something, no it doesn't appear.Is it really true that non-college level classes are not calculated in GPA, not even appear on the transcript sent to med schools from AAMC? cuz i've taken some non-college level classes in which I was interested and got all A's....

I meant courses taken at university or community college which are considered non-college level. For example, in my school, below level 100 courses are non-college level.
What school do you go to? I think you meant 100+ is not considered an UD or major-related course, right?
