So I've finally done it. I gave notice to my employeer that I intent to work less hours this fall and take a couple of classes required for medical school. A little back ground. I'm 29. I finished two undergrad dergees (BA-Econ, BS-Geology) in four years. Additionally I have an MS in Geology from a top 5 school. I have extensive physical science background, but what I lack is any biology. This it would seem is a rather glaring hole in my academic background. My under grad GPA is about 3.4 So here are my questions: 1) Assuming I get A's does it matter where I take my basic Biology? Taking it at the local community college is much easier (schedule wise, not content wise). I am unable to get into the class at the University of Washington as a non-matriculated student. 2) Should I bother taking more advanced bio/chem courses befor applying? Or is it worth my time? 3) Do I need more advanced bio for the MCAT? Or is the first year (plus an MCAT course) enough to get a good score? I'm curious to get feedback. Thanks.
