Hey everyone! I currently go to hunter college in New York City which is apart of the CUNY system, which contains 10+ colleges, including Hunter. We have thing where we can take courses at other CUNY courses and it would count towards your degree. So have already taken physics 1 at CUNY Baruch College (can't take bio1 here because its full). Now i want take bio1 at CUNY staten island college. My question is, does this look bad on application that i took courses from 3 different colleges, or would it not matter. Is this frowned upon by adcoms? Are there any other CUNY students who have experience with this that can help out.

p.s I don't want to take bio 100 at Hunter because i already took it and failed, it is astronomically hard here (if you don't believe me, just check out the reviews on ratemyprof, she's the most reviewed teacher)

I actually got all my pre-reqs done in about 16 months by stacking my classes (I work full time and have two kids) so that there was overlapping and no gaps. I ended up taking my prereqs at four schools because of their schedules fitting into my timeline the way I needed them to. I don't know if it 'looks bad' but getting all the transcripts into AADSAS was pretty annoying and tedious. It took a month to get all my ducks in a row.
