    I'm not trying to be mean but a 3.5 from a CC and online degree will not be good news for MD schools. If you can do a bachelor's in 2 years at a state brick-and-mortar school, I think that will be best. Be careful to get a 3.5+ though, as a decrease will likely be viewed as an inability to handle tougher courses.

    Medical schools have serious reservations about both CC and online courses. It's a heavy seller's market in admissions nowadays, so don't give them any reason to reject you.

    I concur. Many MD schools seem to not like online coursework. Invest in MSAR Online to find out which ones do and don't.

    Thanks for the tips.
    Which would be better:
    graduating with a online bachelors, going for 2nd B&M bachelors?
    or transferring before final semester to B&M and only earning one bachelors?
