Online vs. In Person Classes

Hey guys!

So for next semester, my school is offering students the option to do the semester online or in-person. My family would prefer that I limit going outside if possible, and don't want me to do in-person classes. However, I am a part time medical assistant and really wanted to pick up clinical hours before I apply for the 2021-2022 cycle. This would require me to go outside around 2 days a week.

Commuting to school takes up a huge chunk of my day (it takes 1.5 hours to get there so 3 hours of my day go to just traveling). If I were to make these classes online I feel that I'd be wasting a lot less time and I can study more.

But would it look bad that I chose online classes vs in person, but then I'm going out to work as a medical assistant twice a week?

BTW I am finished with my pre-reqs so none of the classes I'm taking next sem even if online would be pre-reqs.
