- Pre-Health (Field Undecided)
Hi guys, I'm new here. I just wanted to know if any of you are familiar with Running Start, and if you could give me advice. The short story is that I was home-schooled and then started at my community college doing the Running Start program. Basically, I will graduate high school and also receive my Associate's degree at the same time. I'm in my second year of the program, and have completed a year of General Chemistry and am now started on my Biology. I'm doing fairly well in my classes, (I'll probably end up with a GPA of 3.6-3.7 for CC which isn't great, but it isn't bad either). Once I transfer to University, I will just need Organic Chemistry(which I plan on taking over the Summer, and then Physics. Is this wise? I'm on track to hypothetically apply to Medical School at 19, which is great, but I'm wondering if I should consider taking things easy, and working over the Summers instead of taking OChem. Also, I've considered taking all of my pre-med requirements at University, because that might look better than having them from a Community College. Please give me some advice! Ultimately, I just want to go to Medical School. I don't care what age I get in at, and I'm not in a hurry(anymore at least). I'm open to constructive advice, but please don't post unless you are trying to help me. Having read numerous threads on this site, I am well aware of people who somehow take gratification in trolling pre-meds. So trolls, please don't waste your attempts on this thread.
