    I'm currently doing it, though it's just DIY right now because I missed the deadline to apply to the formal program for this year, but will next year.

    You'll have to be more specific about your background and what you're looking for if you want more specific answers. But in broad strokes, yeah I recommend it.

    Thank you for the reply. Yes I
    Thank you for your reply. I'm doing it starting next summer. I'm just wondering about the available resources for DIY post-bacc students, do we have access to the library? or ID card to enter the library? I'm a person who loves to stay in the library so its one of my concerns. Also when it comes to class registration, as a DIY/non-admitted student, is there certain things I need to know? Thank you!

    Got it. Yeah all students who enroll in a class get an id card (if you choose) that says class participant that gets you into the library.

    In terms of class registration, students in the program get first dibs (your registration class date opena later) but for the 2 classes I'm taking it didn't fill up even in the end.

    Any ithet questions?

    Completed a DIY PB at Harvard extension last year and it has worked out for me so far.

    I have 7 II right now, albeit they are all DO (hoping for some MD love soon).

    My biggest recommendation is to use ratemyprofessor when registering for courses. There are several courses there that are "easy A's" if you put the effort in... just gotta find them.
