I've taken all of the pre-reqs and am considering post-bac because of my 3.0 GPA.
The only thing is that I'm not sure about what classes I should take as a post-bacc.

Take upper division Biology classes. I have seen it recommended to take medical school like courses like Biochemistry, Physiology, Immunology, Genetics, Embryology, etc. Taking upper level biology courses will also help with your MCAT if you have not taken it yet.

depending on your science/nonscience distribution and your grade trends it may be worthwhile to consider the DO route directly. This will allow you to retake classes for grade replacement, thus wiping away old grades for GPA improvement based on new courses.

Thanks for the feedback.
I've retaken a majority of the classes that I got a C or lower in; DO undergrad GPA cumulative: 3.26 and science: 3.4.

I am definetly thinking of applying to DO schools in the future but my homeschool that I want to get in is an allopathic school. I'm trying my best to not move out of state.
