    Hi guys,

    just wanted to ask if anybody has heard anything about the Creighton Univ. Postbacc program for Minorities? I would really appreciate any feedback from people, especially if you are a student at Creighton (not necessarily postbacc). I am a URM, and I was thinking of doing a postbacc to raise my gpa. Ideally, I would prefer to do a postbacc at American University or MCP Hahnemann to be closer to family (and not in the middle of a cornfield, i might add:)But, I'm willing to do anything for 1-3 years to get into a good medical school. Also, I have a brother who's a surgeon at Creighton's St Joseph Hospital and It would be cool to be there under his mentorship/advice in studying, taking the MCAT for the first time, etc. My stats are reaaaaaallly crappy, but That's because of several personal problems and a family crisis that I have now come to deal with. So, basically, I'm looking for any advice on what i should do, and/or information on how tough it is to get into Creighton's postbacc program??? Please help:)

    I'm from Nebraska (cornfields and all) and it is really quite a good program. You are to late to apply this year and you need to have been rejected to apply. The criteria for applying is that you have been educationally (did I spell that right?) or economically disadvantaged. I think they take 7 or 8 students, pay you $40/ day you are in class, and provided you get B's (80%) you're in. Good Luck. Peace.

    Hey thanks for your replies! I do know that its too late to apply for next year, but I only recently started looking into it for the following year. Actually I haven't really applied to med schools at all yet (or taken the MCAT).

    If Creighton's postbacc program requires one to have already applied (and been rejected) to medical school, I guess I can just apply to one school next fall and take the MCAT this August (in an attempt to fit the requirements of the program). Good idea or Bad? Any suggestions?
