If med schools advise not to take pre reqs at community colleges then what classes am I supposed to take for 2 years? Will I have to complete all my pre reqs in junior year of university? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

So you're a transfer student? I think you may get some leniency. Just from calling a lot of schools, they don't mind if you didn't take all the prereqs at a 4-year university, even if the MSAR or their websites tell you otherwise.

Take them. That rule usually applies to people who are already at universities and try to take them cause they're "easier."

Plus, how do you expect to transfer as a science major if you haven't taken any science classes? In my state that's not even possible(to the UC system at least). You NEED to take pre-reqs.

You can do some at a cc or all of it. Just demonstrate that you can handle a 4 year uni course load through upper division courses and a good mcat score. I know someone currently in harvard med school who did all her prereqs at a cc because she needed to take them to transfer. She was a biochem major. Just dont slip
