I’m a career changer who is looking for more clarity on doing a post-bacc at a 4 year vs. a Community College? I am 30 and have an okay-ish (3.5) gpa, but no science coursework at all and a career that is about as far from medicine as you can get (I currently write for TV). Am trying to decide between a DIY state school post-bacc or CC (I am in California, for reference).
I’ve heard many say that Community College is alright (and Ryan, I know you have an episode of OldPre-Meds from around 2017 and it was mentioned that doing CC coursework as a career changer is okay!)…but then I listened to a later episode (where you helped a programmer get into med school), and mentioned he was grilled on why he did his post-bacc at a community college at every single interview. So, it was likely viewed negatively.
Wondering if you have any more current clarity/advice on this?
