    need advice

    Ok so I am currently finishing up my masters in occupational therapy and have suddenly realized that I really want to go further and become a doctor? I was wondering where in California is the best place to take all the prerequisites? and I wanted to know if there was a place where I can finish all of it in a year or so?

    Hey pinkmed,

    You'd probably want to start off by taking a lot of your pre-med requirements at some junior college nearby since it will save you a lot of money and probably allow you to have a more flexible schedule if you're going to be working at the same time.

    Alternatively you could apply to a nearby UC (Cal, Davis, or Santa Cruz) and take the courses there. That might seem more prestigious in the eyes of medical school admissions officers but sometimes UCs are hesitant to admit people with previous degrees into undergraduate courses.

    Please DO NOT private message me for help.

    Post all questions in the public forums only
    so that the answers will benefit others who
    may have the same question in the future.

    Interested in Pakistani Medical Schools?
