I’m currently taking Physics 1 online and recently I found out that med schools don’t accept online prereq classes but at my institution the transcript doesn’t show if a class was taken online. Is there any other way med schools can find out?
Im thinking of withdrawing this Physics online class and taking it again on classroom. Does anyone have any recommendations? I’m afraid of finishing this class and then have it come up I’m my med school application.
There are various ways. Sometimes it's listed as online flat out. Sometimes it's in the title of the course. Sometimes the code has O or OL at the end (i.e. PHYS201OL) signifying On Line (or another code). Sometimes the school itself is an online school. Sometimes the campus is online only, which would depend on if the school designates campus anywhere on the transcript.
With that said, the way you are asking it is as if you want to hide it - "they can't find out, so I'm going to take it online and not tell anyway" - and this is very bad. Not because of the course being online, but because you'd be lying if you're looking for a work around, and thats not good.
