Hi. I am new to this forum and I'm a premed student starting college this January. Being that i am 16 years old, right now just about my only option is to attend my local community college. People have told me that having courses from a community college on my transcript can put me at a disadvantage when it comes to application time. I was just wondering how severe of a problem this can be on my application. I plan on transferring to a 4 year collge or university as soon as i accumulate 24 credits which should me by next fall or the spring of 2004. I am also serious about attending medical school and plan on doing well and getting clinical experience before i take the MCAT and apply. I would just like to know if taking my first few premed courses at a community college and then taking more advanced courses(I plan on pursuing a science major, possibly biochem.) at my 4 year school would be harmful for my application. If someone with a bit of experience on this or who knows about it can give me some advice i would appreciate it. Thanks.
