I applied to dental school and got denied for fall 2019. My major is in biology and I have a minor in chemistry- I graduate from my undergrad in May. My gpa is 3.23 and science gpa is 2.74.
I decided to apply to Duquense University Post Bacc program and Iowa State University Master in Biomedical Science program (1 year non thesis) to enhance my application. The links are posted below. Does anyone know which program will look the best to dental schools when I reapply?
Which program is the best choice for fall 2019?

Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (one-year, non-thesis) | Iowa State University
Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical and Health Professions Program

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I didn't go into other links on the main pages but I would go with the program based on curriculum and cost. Choose a program that can show that you can handle science courses.
