    hey guys,

    i'm looking into 3 post bac programs here in philly. mcp hahnemann, upenn and pcom. and depending on which program i get accepted to, it can affect my finances for tuition.

    my first question to you guys is, does it really matter to the med school admissions which post-bac program you went through? ideally, i would like to go through the hahnemann program, but the downside to that is that you can't work full-time. i'm a full-time employee now and can't afford to stop work. so that leaves me with pcom or upenn.

    my second question if you got the same gpa coming out of any of three programs, would the medical school put more weight over one program over another? what i'm asking is does it really really matter.
    what do you guys think?

    thanks
    PharmDR

    It depends on the medical schools that you are applying to.

    Some schoolos might not be familiar with PCOM or MCP but everybody has heard of UPENN.

    Plus if you got high grades in UPENN I would think admissions people would like that.

    However if you want to go to MCP med school or PCOM osteo school then I would choose those post bac programs.

    Good Luck
