I just got a BS in mechanical engineering, and I want to pursue medical school. I realize I need to take MCAT, along with 2 chemistry and 2 biology courses to fulfill the pre-medical requirements. The requirements don't specify where to take these courses, or they have to be taken in pre-medical school program if I don't have health-related degree? I realize these courses are typically lower-division courses that I could take in community college, rather than take these courses in pre-medical school. I want to ask does it make any difference to medical school admission? I am planning to take pre-medical program in UC Berkeley Extension. However, the cost is very expensive compared with community college. Any ideas if I could find some financial aid? I only see they have loan financial aid available. Any suggestions are welcome. Please advice. thanks!!
