Hey everyone, I've been lurking for some time now and reading all of the posts, which have been extremely helpful. My question is: how will an admissions committee view pre-req's taken at a community college vs. a 4 year university? My degree (BS Political Science/Sociology minor) will be from TCU (Texas Christian) with a few sciences taken there but I would like to save some cash and get chemistry and physics at a local CC. I have a lot of nursing courses (switched majors a few months ago as a junior status) so I don't know how that will factor into everything...hopefully will be beneficial. Also, if I apply for admission 2006 (in other words start applying summer/fall 05), will I be ok if I lack biology (I already have a full year of A&P, but not bio...yet) and calculus? I will have completed them in May of 2006. Sorry for so many questions. Any information is greatly appreciated!! Holly P.S. Is there a professional organization I can join in the meantime as a pre-optometry student?
