So I just got my bachelor in biology but my GPA is not attractive. As I am more responsible now and know what I want in my life I'm thinkin grad school to help me look good when I apply for med school but I am also just thinking a 2nd degree in biochem so I can have some research experience and a sky-high GPA. Any advice?

What exactly do you mean by not attractive? Grad degrees don't usually help in the eyes of ADCOMs. And it does nothing to erase your uGPA. It's really hard to offer suggestions without knowing what your current cGPA and your sGPA are!

My sGPA is a 2.6 cGPA a 2.4 so that's why I am leaning more towards 2nd degree to redo and make a better future

MD schools will average all undergrad grades. DO schools will replace grades in classes retaken. You will break 3.2 more efficiently with grade replacement than a "second bachelor's."
