Hello everyone, first time poster here. I will be a freshman attending a community college this year. For me, this option makes the most sense financially. I have browsed through the forum and found topics stating that taking my general ed requirements at a community college will not significantly hinder my chances at getting into med school. The problem is that due to the high demand for these classes I was only able to secure 10 credit hours (2 credits shy of what qualifies me for full time student status) for this upcoming fall semester. I was wondering if med schools would see this and think that I'm trying to take a semester easy, and look down on that when it comes to admission. Would it be better for me to leave it as it is and spend my free time shadowing and volunteering, and make up for this deficit by taking summer classes? Should I add an additional class just to be considered a full time student? Thanks.
