    Hello everyone. I need your comments. For reaplicants, we need to do a few things to improve our resume right. I am retaking the MCAT, I also have a 3.3 science GPA so I have been advised to take additional classes thru extension education. Has anyone been advised by their counselors to do the same in their year off? I was advised by one counselor, but the courses are so expensive, plus it will not increase my GPA that much. All it shows is that I am still in school, taking courses. Have anyone taken online sciences courses, what are the work load? Any comments frm you guys are appreciated. thanks.

    Have you graduated yet? If so, any courses you take after graduating are considered post-bacc studies and are added to your undergrad GPA and tallied as a separate GPA by AMCAS. I was advised to take biochemistry as a post-bacc class because I had a pretty weak biology background though tons of clinical experience. I took the course through my alma mater, which offers a discount to alumni. When I didn't get in last year, I decided to enter a graduate program in epidemiology to really bolster my resume.

    Sorry, I don't really know much about extension courses though.
