I am now in a junior college and wish to transfer soon to a 4 year university and hopefully apply to med school. My question is is that out of high school I went to a technical school to become an auto mechanic but quickly decided that that sucked. When I apply to other colleges do the grades I earned at the tech school count toward anything. My grades there sucked-they graded on the traditional 4.0 scale. If I count only the "real" schools like the junior college my grades are great.
