Hello! It's been a while since I've come on here, and as a non trad student with a family, more things have come up to deter my medschool path(ie, new baby☺️). So I've taken time to hash things out but I still need plenty of advice. I'm staying in Florida to pursue a postbac in order to do my prereqs. I have a 3.44 gpa from UF and cannot return there due to financial constraints. Basically, I'd have to pay with private loans or out of pocket. Anyhow, I'm pretty much convinced I will be enrolling at UCF as a second degree seeking student. However, there are always complications. My husband will be deploying oversees next year with the military. With him leaving, I feel like I will need the support of family even more than ever, who currently, live in the next town over. If I move to Orlando, I will be in a brand new town, just adjusting to everything, and family will be hours away. However, as I said, UF isn't really an option. So... Could I do my postbac at the local community college in Gainesville, which hey, if it means anything at all, just got recognized as the "best cc" in the country. And try my luck with medschool, attempting an smp if my first cycle of applications are unsuccessful? Or just suck it up and attend UCF for better odds(potentially) from the start? Is either option more of a money saver? Gives me a better chance to med school assuming I do phenomenally? Anything I'm missing, please fill me in. Any advice, please let me know! Thanks!
