I have a pretty steady upward trend from a rocky beginning to college and am looking like I'll graduate with ~ a 3.5 - 3.6 cGPA and sGPA. Should I still be considering SMP programs or should I be looking at other options during my two gap years?

The average GPA of people who are accepted is ~3.7. Your GPA is fine, and looks even better coupled with an upward trend. A strong MCAT would make you a competitive applicant. I personally think that an SMP is overkill for your situation and that if you're looking for something to do for two years, something like working in healthcare would look better.
