    Ok, my major is Kinesiology. Im also premed (duh). The problem is that my major is full of physiology and anatomy, which i love, and alot of kinesioloy classes. I am in Gen Chem now, and when i transfer outta community college, i will have to take physiology and anatomy next year. Im also plannin on taking bio an calc too. Over the summer, i want to take physics, and junior year i wanna take Orgo. Does this sound like a good plan? I wish my major would allow me to take physiology and anatomy my senior year, but it doesnt. Any feedback would be a great help...oh,by the way, i have heard so much about taking premed classes at a community collge, and i really dont care since i am gettig a solid "A".

    Annie,
    I can't give you all the info that you are looking for, but you should know that coming from a community college to a university the level of difficulty increases. Based on what admissions people I have known, they will look at community college courses to assure you did well, but when it comes to your application they will put a lot more weight on your college courses and how you do. Just beware of this because I had friends that had 4.0 coming from CCs and were barely over a 3.0-3.5 in college. So although their GPA averages were 3.5 or a little higher (averaging ccs and university), they were getting rejected by med schools.
