    Advantages in terms of application to med school? Not enough of a difference to matter.
    Needless to say it will give you a better background for medical school, but I don't think it's worth the money.

    If you had a lower GPA, it would help you to get straight As in upper-level science courses. But your GPA is fine, so there's no point to taking extra classes. If you want an advantage in med school, you could learn the material on your own, or pay big bucks to audit a classroom or on-line course (no point in lowering your GPA if your work will keep you from putting your full effort into the course).
