  1. Pre-Medical
I am looking for some advice on which path to take. I already have a bachelors and masters in a non-science field. My GPA is around 3.7 but it is very light on core sciences. The question at hand is of the multiple paths available, what would be the best way to obtain the science courses needed? Just take the required pre-reqs or earn an additional, science degree? I live in Florida so MD and DO are both options.

Thanks.

Earning a second degree does not give significant added benefit, especially for the time, money, and energy it would take. Better us of those resources would be getting the necessary core requirements (whether DIY or formal program) and doing well on MCAT
