    Many students in your situation will elect to enter a Masters program of some sort to beef up their applications. Three of the more popular programs out there, all of which are specifically tailored for getting you into medical school (according to their literature at least), are 1) Georgetown University's Masters in Physiology, 2) Boston University's Masters in something, and 3) MCP-Hahnehmann University's (Philadelphia, PA) Masters in Biomedical Science.

    There's also another one here in New York at New York Medical College. I hear mixed things about the NYMC program, but have heard generally good things about the other three.

    Good luck!
