Do admissions offices look down on an online degree? Would it be better to go back and get a traditional degree in something like biology or chemistry?
Don’t do online degree.
With traditional route, doesn’t matter as long as pre-reqs for the med school you apply to are fulfilled.
If you already have an online degree, take as many of the pre-reqs as you can in a brick-and-mortar institution and also talk to admissions officers at some of the schools that interest you to see if that will be satisfactory.
Yes, some may look down on it if the transcript indicated “online”.
