Background: I'm a very low gpa'er. BS in Biology 2000. Situation: I found a Post-Bac that seems like I might meet the minimum gpa requirements. Not sure yet, have to confirm further. Here's the deal, they also want an MCAT, but they don't say whether a prereq is to have applied to medical school and failed to get in--though they seem to insinuate it. I assume not though because with their minimum gpa cutoff who in their right mind would have applied to medical school. Additionally, who would have taken the MCAT w/o at least thinking about applying to med school. Other info: Admission to their med school, if you successfully comlete the program. Admission to the post-bac is favored to URM students. I fall into a underrepresented sub-ethnic group within a respresented ethnic group. And they use AMCAS criterias for URM students. I may not qualify. Draft Plan: If further follow-up proves positive, my plan is to bring out my science books self-study (for a year or more or until I feel confident for succes on the MCAT), practice exams, possibly take an MCAT course, take MCAT (hope to get above average scores), apply to the type of programs above, in addition to work, get ECs, shadows, LORs, etc. Pro: Cost Don't have to quit work. My own pace. Con: Must be self-discplined. What do y'all think? Any suggestions advice would be greatly appreicated. Thanks!
