I'm currently in my first semester of pre-reqs for a nursing degree. However, after taking these classes and seeing how easy they are, I've begun to really rethink my old dream of going to medical school. I've always wanted to do that but always chickened out and finally took the safe route with nursing. ( A commendable career, but I'm starting to think I don't want to wake up one day and hate myself for not taking that leap of faith and trying for med school.)

I've already recieved a BA in English (art minor) from MTSU (a decent state school) with a 3.56 (Cum Laude). I studied abroad in Japan, was in a few clubs (mainly freshman year), and had around a 3.7ish (roughly) in the few basic science classes I took. I'm currently trying to find some sort of medical volunteering oppurtunity, which is proving hard, but hopefully when I start applying to post-baccs I'll have something going on.

What would my chances be in a post-bacc program? Also, does anyone know about some decent programs other than the well-known ones (Bryn Mawr, Goucher, Scripps, etc.)? I'd like one that isn't really really hard to get into, is relatively inexpensive (as in, not as much for one year as what I paid for my entire college degree), and will get me into a good medical school. Does anyone know if the ETSU program is decent?

Thanks for any advice.
