Schools really don’t care if you have one, two, three, or eight degrees. What they care about is how you do in your courses (GPA).Hello,
I just graduated Fall 2019, with a B.S. in Microbiology minor in Psychology. My overall gpa 2.69 & my science gpa 2.71 /: definitely not the best.
I was thinking about completing a post-baccularate program to redo any courses I have a C in & pre-requisites for medical school (biochemistry & lab) however when signing up for the post-baccularate program it has me on a pre-psychology degree route. To complete the psychology degree I would only need 5 classes (since most of the classes I’ve taken with my minor and are transferrable) with my psychology minor I had a 3.50 overall gpa. Would obtaining a second degree help my chances with a poor Microbiology degree gpa?
I havent taken the MCAT yet, so I don’t have those stats but just want to see if obtaining the second bachelors in psychology degree is worth it or just take classes to improve my science gpa?
To have a chance at DO you need to get your GPA above 3.0 or higher for sure.
