I'm a senior in high school and I am completely determined to go to 5medicine.. and I aim for hopkins or mayo. Because of economical issues i was planning on going my first two years to a cc in california saving some money on tuition and housing since my grandma has a house in sd not used. Then after getting my credit hours and establishing residence, transfer to a UC (again, aiming for berkeley or LA) to major in neuroscience. But right I've been acceptted in several 4 year colleges and univs, my top choice being King's College PA because of a 50% merit scholarship. Now, King's is not a very prestiguous college and I would end up transferring anyways without the California residence (which in the long run would probably surpass my scholarship) and being far far away from home. So.... question, Does it make a big difference for medical schools if I take my first two years at a cc (very likely including some, if not most, prerequisites) and is it worth it in my situation?
