I went to undergrad and got a B.S. and a B.A. from a Tier 1 school - with a whopping GPA of 2.68. I worked through all four years of college and graduated this past May. I am now looking to do what I actually want to do - med school admissions are in my way. I have not taken any of the pre-reqs. Here is my plan: I will go to UNC - Charlotte (Chapel Hill doesn't allow second degree candidates) to get a degree in Biology - hopefully get as close to a 4.0 as humanly possible (I am thinking 3.9). I am going to start my paramedic classes in Spring (finish by May), and work as a paramedic this summer until fall classes. I was going to continue working as a paramedic during the summers and take classes in Spring/Fall full time. First question: I don't know of any post-bacc programs I could get into with a 2.68 - are there any? Is this a valid option? Most I have seen want MCAT scores and a 3.0 - neither of which I have. Second question: My undergrads are in math & econ - so I dont' see how I could do a graduate program that would help me. Are there any that I could actually get into? I am great at standardized tests - pulled a 171 on the LSAT, passed some actuarial exams, 1440 on SAT. I am almost positive I can crack a 33 or 34 on the MCAT. Third question: I am sitting behind a different computer screen 3 years from now with a 3.9 in a BS in bio with a 33 on my MCAT. My 2.6 GPA (I assume) is factored in, let's say it averages me out to a 3.25. Does this put me into med school? Does this put me into a good med school? Is there anything else I can do? Fourth (Last, I promise) question: Is the paramedic the best medical-related work I can do in the summers? Would a regular internship at a hospital be better? THANK YOU for all of your help in advance. You guys are such a helpful resource!
