    I know that Med schools don't recommend taking prequisites at a community college. But, what if I took two general core classes like Arts and Humanites at a cc? It's definitely a lot cheaper and the summer semester will only last a month, so I'll have plenty of time to do volunteerng, shadowing, etc. Is it a good idea?

    as long as you don't take the med school pre-reqs (english, o chem, bio, chem, physics) there to avoid difficulty at your home school, i'd say you're ok. just make sure that your home school will accept the cc credits to fill humanities/general reqs for your degree.

    i wouldn't make a habit of doing this, but for 2-3 courses it shouldn't matter too much.

    I took English at a technical college over the summer when I was a fresman and couldn't get into the class at the university. It didn't create any probs. Definitely agree with not taking any science classes there.
