Hi! I am a recent college grad and I want to apply to medical school but my gpa was not very strong in undergrad. My advisor very casually mentioned to just apply to another program like a postbacc or masters, but I really can not afford another program right now. I started working a job after graduation but I'm still unsure if I can finance a whole other program, even at community college. My advisor says that because this is the only weak portion of my application, that is literally the only thing that I could address to make myself a stronger applicant. Is it true that working in a clinic or lab (where I can get paid) will not strengthen my application as much as being in a postbacc program? If so, does anyone have advice on how to navigate this as a low income student? I was lucky to make it through college without loans and I know I will have to take them out for med school, so I'm really trying to avoid taking more out now. Any advice? Thank you!
