I posted this question on the "What Are My Chances" forum as well because I didn't know how to find this one! Any sort of advice would be wonderful. I didn't perform very well during my undergraduate years. Lots of extenuating circumstances but the end all is my grades didn't hack it. I am honing specifically on U of MN because my live in boyfriend bought a house in the area thereby making us rather immobile (for the time being). If the right opportunity presents itself we are open to the idea of moving, but I digress. My plan of action is to start studying for the MCAT and see if my score is worth using in applying. After I receive my MCAT score and assuming it's a decent score, would it be better to retake my basic science prereqs or take a variety of upper division science course? Would Math courses be relevant? I don't have the time nor money to apply to a Masters program. Also, should I focus on padding my EC list? During my undergraduate, I worked full time as a Phlebotomist at the local Trauma Level 1 hospital. I did this for about five years. I was also a Tour Guide and a Rep for the Chancellor's Multicultural Affairs. Last question-I currently work as a Sales Rep; should I keep my current employment or seek something health care related? If I choose the former I think it would make me interesting but if I choose the latter I am doing something extremely relevant towards med school. I did call the U of MN main line but I couldn't get a lot of assistance from the person I spoke to. If I understood them correctly, they don't have on site admissions counselors to help you through the process.
