Community College vs Universities

Hi all! I am currently working full time at a start-up, and I am weighing options for getting prereq’s for med school apps. There’s a community college here in Austin that I could take classes at, but I’m worried the “community college” aspect of it will look bad on med school apps, especially if it’s where I’m getting all my science courses. Does location and rigour matter for prereqs?

It doesn’t matter per-se, but you should kill your University degree as well. What medical schools don’t want is to see you go to a CC because it is “easier”. They will also look at the academic rigor when you finish your 4 year degree.
