SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I'm a 26 year old aspiring health professional (just decided again a few days ago). I earned a Computer Science degree with a mediocre 2.7 GPA and earned an MBA with a 3.5 GPA. I'm currently enrolled in the prestigious New York City Teaching Fellows program which I am earning a subsidized second Masters degree in teaching mathematics through Pace University. I am slated to teach for the next two years at the "inner city" high school I graduated from. (Go figure!) I bet it'll be an interesting experience because my former teachers will now become my colleagues and I'll be able to become role model to students that used to sit in the same seats that I did as a highschooler. It will be such a surreal experience to be a teacher at the institution that I attended. I'm truly looking forward to this opportunity. I'll be receiving an Americorps grant for my service. However, teaching is not where I want to be for the rest of my life. So I'm making plans now to transition to an alternative career after I complete my two years of teaching service. I started out pre-med in college and I had pretty decent grades in the semester of General Biology and the year of General Chemistry that I took. Once I got to Orgo, I freaked out, dropped the course and decided to solely pursue my CS degree. I guess I was slightly turned off from pursuing medical career after the infamous Orgo. Just couple of days my mom encouraged me to rekindle those interests. Like I received the chicken pox two weeks ago and I became so interested in learning more about the viral illness that I contracted. I know the medical profession can be more intricate than this interest, but it dawned on me that this field of caring for the "well being" of individuals is the type of career that I would love to spend the rest of my life in. I'm now faced with the situation of going back to acquire my additional prerequisites for health professional schools. I can afford to attend a different college and get financial aid for courses as a second bachelor's degree student on alternate evenings because where I'm attending for master's degree through the fellows is only one night a week and thankfully that degree is paid for. I would like to ask board members' advice, would it make sense to get a second BA or BS degree after I acquired a Masters degree? I'm thinking of a Chemistry major or a Philosophy major and my additional prereqs. I feel I can use the extra undergraduate coursework to increase my lousy 2.7 GPA from my first bachelors and spend time working on preparing for my MCAT. I plan to apply to med school within two to three years (God willing). So I have time to increase my record.
