  1. Pre-Medical
I don't have any more space in my course schedule to take pre-med courses at my college (currently a Finance/Economics dual major). I work full-time during the summer to pay for tuition, so summer school unfortunately isn't an option. I've take Pre-calc, Calc I, Data and Stats Analysis, and all of my chemistries through O-Chem I at my current university. I plan to graduate on time, so my question is this: what looks better on medical school applications? Taking my pre-med courses online at UNE, or at a local community college?

Both have way cheaper tuition than paying for credit hour overload at my current university. My goal is to eventually end up at OSU med (hopefully, though I know I may not get accepted to competitive programs). Let me know opinions below.

I got a couple of question. Sorry OP for detracting.

What do you think of taking an upper division pharmacology course in a DIY post-bac? What about retaking a C in Biochemistry if I haven't taken the MCAT yet?

Thanks for your help!
The pharm course may not be part sGPA
dont retake a C; if you are worried about the MCAT, more self study/khan academy is in order

The pharmacology course is offered through the Biology department and has a BIOL prefix. DO you think I shouldn't take it regardless?
dept is the basis of course classification
It is solely based on the course content

Post the official college catalog course description

Borderline but may pass scrutiny. Its a gamble if this is designed for BCPM GPA
