    Hi, I am narrowing down the schools that I am going to apply.
    I am a VA state resident and I just crossed out the schools that give higher preference to in-state residents except VA :)

    I took many classes at Community College (NVCC) and they are
    Gen bio1, gen chem 1&2, physics 1.
    I took rest of the prerequisites and upper level classes at 4 year institution(GMU).

    I heard that some schools don't even look at CC credits or look down and put us in a different pool.
    I want to know what schools are like that.

    I also want to know if you are in the same boat as I do.


    Edit:
    University of Pittsburgh
    "The admissions committee does not consider highly those applicants who have been enrolled for more than one-third of coursework (both general and required courses) in community colleges or junior colleges. Grades of C or better are expected in prerequisite courses."

    Nice~ I guess UCSF accepts pre-reqs from CC.
    But it seems that school prefers in-state :(

    I took the same classes as I did at CC, so I think you're OK , just look at the CC limits the schools have ... and look at the post by doc toothache (last time I wrote doc toothpaste sorry for that , doc ;))

    Diablo View College(aka DVC), in Pleasant Hill, CA. All pre-req's taken there and all LOR's from instructors there. I did biochem in Berkeley when I transfered.

    P.S. If you want your predents profile to work from SDN, ener your user id, not your username. :)
