    Thanks for the quick response.

    But, my real questions are on the policy, so that I could confidently plan my time between now and Sep 2010.

    a) Would admissions treat community colleges any different, if ....
    - Course content is same as universities
    - Text books are identical

    b) Can admissions provide upfront guidance on transfer of credits, since ....
    - I would be investing time and money in courses.
    - My intent of completing courses is to save time.

    c) Can admissions give an early assessment on the course acceptance if I provided outline and laboratory schedule?

    Excellent, this really helps me plan my goals. I can now confidently take courses at Raritan, that are part of the curriculum and join the program at KMCIC/AUA.

    From your professional experience, what would you advice me?
    - Apply as pre-med student for Sep 2010 with credits (Ist year and some II nd year courses)
    - Apply as basic sciences student for Mar 2011 (I will be able to complete the pre-med courses)

    Sounds reasonable and realistic. I appreciate your input and help.

    Based on your earlier comment ....
    Since you are trying to gain credit at Raritan, KMCIC's Admissions Committee may want to invite you to another semester: July or January.
    and
    KMCIC academic calendar manipal.edu/Institutions/HealthSciences/KMCIC/Programs/BScHealthSciences/Pages/Academiccalendar.aspx

    Tell me if I understood it right, I may be invited to join KMCIC/AUA, either in
    a) July 2010 - Semester 1,2,.... (I wouldn't have completed pre-Bsc reqs by then)
    or
    b) Sep 2010 - Eligible for Semester 1 or 2, but website lists admission for Semester 3

    Not sure how it will work for me , please advice ????
