    I would think that a masters degree in the sciences would be your best bet. Although interesting, a masters degree in western philosophy may not convince the admission committee that you can hack the science courses. Do remember, however, that a masters degree will help you in getting into med school IF you do well, but on the other hand, it may also hurst you IF you do not do well -- it's kind of a gamble. A lot of folks who go into masters programs are those wanting to pursue a career in research, they are very different in personality and ambitions to those wanting to do patient care, and some of them are very intelligent and science minded. Therefore, you will be competing with these types of folks. I don't want to scare you off, but I just want you to be aware of what may be ahead. I wish you the very best!
