    SUNY Purchase Post-Bacc Pre-Med Program

    Hi, Has anyone applied to SUNY Purchase to complete pre-med requirements as a post-bacc?

    George Mason University, MS in Nutrition

    Hi all, I wasn't sure where exactly to post this since it's not quite Pre-Med and there isn't a separate forum for Nutrition either-- I guess "Pre-Health" is the best way to label where I am right now. In any case, I'm interested in pursuing the MS in Nutrition program at George Mason...

    UCLA Extension:pre-medicine & gen. science certificate

    After being rejected by every post-bacc. program, I sucked it up and applied to the UCLA extension program. They don't really offer a lot of info on their website.

    SMP or Post-Bacc?

    If I can get my cGPA and sGPA to a 3.4-3.5 after a year/year and a half during a post bacc, would it still be worth it to do a SMP? Or should I just shine through with my ECs, and apply DO and "low tier"?
