I'm finishing up my first year in an MPH program. I am planning on reapplying to med school next summer and I'm trying to do extremely well in all my courses, especially epi and biostats. I decided to take an infectious disease course due to interest as well as an attempt to demonstrate that I can succeed in a graduate level science-based course. Well, I may not receive an A in the course and I am debating if I should make it Pass/ Fail instead in order to protect my 4.0 GPA. (By the way, my undergrad overall GPA was a 3.6). It's not a required course for my concentration. In between undergrad and grad school I took graduate level courses (Immunology, endocrinology) and did exceptionally well. I figured those courses would add to my overall science GPA. I'm unsure if Pass/Fail would appear as a weakness on my application in comparison to a B+. I know that this is getting into the nitty gritty of applying but I would appreciate any comments or thoughts from those who have been in my situation or are in my situation now. Thanks.
