Well, i have to disagree and say that CC courses definitely are of a lower caliber. the science courses i took at CC (physics with calculus 1 and 2) were SOOOOOOOOO much easier than the ones i took when i was in college for real at a 4 year school. I got A's, and I'm sure if i had tried taking physics with calculus at the school i graduated from, i would have been very lucky to get a B. The med schools want to feel sure you can handle a lot of difficult course work before they accept you, because med school is really tough. if your most challenging academic experiences before med school were CC classes, you would be in for a rude awakening. so i don't think it's completely wrong for them to look at CC courses as having less merit.

I personally think it's silly and need i say it? discrimination. Simply because it is a cc doesn't mean it's of a lower caliber. We have to pay enough as it is and I think that they should realize that cost-effectiveness is important too. Then again I could hear them say, if you want it that badly that how much are you willing to pay? Sometimes I think they'd like to see how much of a mental contortionist we can be before we get there. Twister anyone?
