Re: Post-Bacc Student Seeking Advice
Well if it helps I had a 4.0 from a relatively obscure liberal arts university, and I took my post bacc pre-med credits at Towson which isn't a very prestigious university by a long shot (Although it isn't a CC). I had a 4.0 in all my premed courses and I got into both schools I applied to. Interestlingly, Case seemed very pleased with my score on the writing sample of the MCAT although most medical schools don't pay any attention to it, so your degree from a top 10 school could bode well.
I think the admission boards look at every aspect of your application, not just one GPA or the other. They will look at you as a person, including your life experiences, your path toward discovering the AA profession and how you have shown that you really want it and will settle for nothing less.
Tons of Luck!!
