    I took some of my med school pre reqs in CC while I was in the Nursing Program. I'm currently going on the path to Med School, would I have have to re-take those courses at a 4 year ? I've heard about how Adcoms dislike pre reqs being taken at a CC , I got A's on the them, should I still retake them, just to be safe?

    I have read the the long debate about uni vs CC. I think as long as you know the information, it will reflect on your MCAT.

    Im really not sure, can I still retake the classes for a refresher? So the med schools will know that I can handle the curriculum

    It varies from school to school. Invest in MSAR to see which schools accept CC credits. But overall, you should be OK.
