I am so frustrated. I've been taking pre-req's at a local CC (financially this was what I could afford) - bio 1, physics 1, chem 1 & 2, a&p 1&2 . then i decided i wanted to take the rest of the pre-req's and some upper level science classes in a post-bacc program I figured that should work... to show that I can do well at the CC level, and also show that I can do well with upper level classes from at 4-year school. I contacted the director of the program at a nearby school and asked her for some advice about what I should do... and she has been so unhelpful. This is what she wrote in the last e-mail: The truth of the matter is that community college courses are not rated as highly as courses from 4 year colleges. However, since most of your science courses are from there , I don't think having a few from *****, will count for much. Is she right? would it just be pointless if I went there just and finished up my pre-req's and upper level classes? I've only taken 6 classes at the CC... I was planning on taking even more than that at the 4-year school. I'm feeling very confused and she just ruined the end of a very lovely break.
