does it matter where you take prereqs?

  1. Hello,

    I come from an engineering background and am interested in applying to nursing programs designed for people with a bachelor's in a different field. The programs seem very competitive, and I'm wondering if it matters where I take the pre-requisite classes I need to apply. I know UCSF says they don't care as long as you do the research to make sure it's a good class geared towards people intending to go into the health/science field. I'm wondering if they or others still look down on community colleges in general.

    If anyone's from the bay area (peninsula specifically), please suggest where to take them!

    Thanks!!

    Most people take their prerequisites at community colleges to save money. If there is any preference otherwise, from admissions personnel, it is not a well publicized fact.

    it is not looked down upon if you take prereqs at a community college. college is college. many community colleges have better reputations than some universities.
