    I'm a biochem. graduate student,and I would like to enter into medicine after I've worked for about a year or two following completion of my masters degree.I've read,and been told that not a lot of graduates at the masters level enroll in medical school(about 12%);and I've been adviced that post Bacc. courses carry a heavier weight than graduate completion with most adcoms in medschools.But the thing with post Bacc. courses(and if I'm wrong,please correct me)is that if I don't get accepted into medical school,then I wouldn't have an optimal academic cusion to fall back on as I would having a masters degree!
    Well,enough of my rumbling.it's too late anyway for I have two semesters left to complete my garduate degree.is this a terrible "catch 22" or what??

    Cheers,

    My solution would be:
    1) get your Master's with a 3.75+ GPA
    2) do very well on the MCATs (32+)
