Hi, Folks!

I have aquick guestion

I am a mother of two kids (4 and 2 years old) I a planning on going back to school and finish my undergraduate degree. I still need 60 credit hours for my biology pre-med major.

Should I relocate to Athens or not?

1. I heard that UGA is much better school
2. I live 60 miles from GSU and it took me 4 hours every day to commute to GSU before I had kids

Now, I think it would be exhausting to commute so much in addition to taking my kids to two different schools and bringing them back

However, my husband is not sure if he can find a job in Athens. he is a software developer with 20 years experience

Please, advise if UGA will prepare me better to MCAT

I don't think so, I think you can do well where you are. You will want to go through a good MCAT Prep anyway before taking it.
