I am a non-traditional premed student, who is looking to complete all the basic prereqs required for medical school application. I work full time (remotely) and I am paying for the courses myself so I thought of doing a DIY post bacc. I started with an enrolment in General Chemistry at a UC extension campus last month. The course is good but due to the current situation, it is conducted online. I am interested in continuing to take my basic pre-req courses at UC extension, however, I have some doubts before I register for the upcoming Summer quarter.
Are extension classes viewed poorly by admission committees? Do admission committees only require pre-req classes taken at a regular 4-year university or community college? Has anyone faced any issues with extension classes in the past?
The extension classes will be online for the summer of 2021 and I plan to register for a chemistry lab during the summer. Would it be okay to do the lab coursework online?
Thanks in advance.
