    hi, everyone...

    If uGPA is below 3.0, do you have to keep taking post bac

    classes until your Cum GPA (Undergrad+Post Bac) breaking 3.0?


    Is this good enough...

    a 4.0 Post Bac GPA with 4 bio courses
    U GPA < 3.0
    Cum GPA ( udergrad + Post bac) 2.7

    There will be exceptions in both directions (people with higher GPA who didn't get in, people with lower who did). I don't think getting an 'A' in 4 courses would in most adcoms eyes wipe the academic slate clean however. Infact some schools even stipulate a minimum number of credit hours before they will even consider the work as a separate 'postbac' GPA rather than lumping it in with undergrad work.

    Most regular postbac courses are 1-2 years of full-course load. I think you should aim to accomplish outstanding grades on that kind of course-committment level before you can feel confident schools will look at it as significant and look past a sub 3.0 UG GPA.

    As with all advice on here - this is just my opinion, and I don't sit on an adcom.
