Hi,
I recently heard from a few friends that medical schools do not factor in grades from Pre-Med courses taken at a community college into your GPA for consideration..In other words, you are essentially taking them Pass/No-Pass. Is this true?? And how about if I took them at a Cal State?
Thanks!

If you have a 3.9+ at a Cal State you will have a chance.

A 4.0 wont exactly be impressive, but a 3.2 will look bad.

Holy mother of science, use the search function: you will get more threads (filled with dozens of posts) on this subject than you will get posts in this thread!
