    I have taken my courses at many undergrad schools. I have 4 schools already including summer classes. I am thinking about retaking some prereqs at a 5th school that is nearby my home. Would this look bad when applying for medical schools?

    well what four schools have you taken classes at?

    are we talking Harvard, MIT, Princeton, and Yale
    or University of Phoenix, Everest College, Underfunded Community College. and Devry?

    the rule of thumb here is to avoid taking prereqs at a community college, other then that I don't think it makes a difference as long as they are reputable institutions

    My app had 3/4 schools. One CC, one state school, and one top tier university. My degree is from the state school.

    So it might not be ideal, but do what you have to do. I don't think anyone cares all that much unless you're obviously taking difficult classes at places they might be easier. So don't take Orgo 1/2 at the local CC when you're getting your degree from UC Berkeley.
