    I was just wondering if anyone knows if med schools can tell if a class is a distance learning class (i.e. an online class or a class that only meets one weekend out of the quarter/semester), and if so, how do they view these classes?

    I personally have no problem with taking a few distance learning classes (because in some subjects I learn better when doing it at my own pace), but I know that others view these classes as easier than classes that meet normally.

    Any thoughts??

    Request a copy of your transcript then you can see what AMCAS and the medical schools will see.

    I took Medical Terminology online from my University (that's the only way the offer it). It shows up on my transcript no different from any other course. As far as anyone knows I sat in class three hours a week listening to lectures about greek roots and singular versus plural spellings.
