Does it matter what kind of masters degree you get if you want to apply for medical school? Instead of getting a masters in applied phys or into an SMP how about an MBA/Healthcare administration? Would they look at your application with a WTF look on their face? Also, how would they take it if you got your degree online from a well known school like NYIT or University of liverpool or George Washington University? I doubt that on the degree it will not have the word online printed on it.
