Well good news and perhaps bad (or at least tepid). I was accepted to a local post-bacc program on the provision that I prove myself in taking General Chemistry and Calculus at a local state college before entering formal post-bacc program; a seat in the Fall 2005 or Winter/Spring 2006 class would be held for me upon satisfactory completion of the above courses. The post-bacc program gave the option of either taking these courses straight away (during the summer) or taking their prerequisite courses (Introduction to Chemistry) and Precalculus. After reviewing my current abilities in the chemistry and math (including self-study), the length of time it has been since my last chemistry and math classes (22 years), and discussing my situation with the Math and Chemistry Departments of the state college, it was recommended that I consider taking the prerequisite classes (Intro to Chem and Precalculus).
Question: Given that I started college taking General Chemistry and Calculus, would now taking their prerequisites (Intro to Chem and Precalculus) make medical school AdComms look askance at my application?
I would still be retaking the General Chemistry and Calculus in the Fall.
