    Hi! I'm 22 years old and I've just graduated from St. John's University this May. Because of personal issues, my GPA suffered severely and is a 2.35. I know, it's horrible and I feel horrible about it because I was a straight A student.

    Medical school has been my dream since I was in the 7th grade. I've been working in doctors office since the 7th grade as well.

    Being that my GPA is horrible, I can't get into any PostBac programs. I was wondering what my next steps should be. Should I earn a bachelor's in biology and then apply to a PostBac?

    Please, any info would be helpful. I'm desperate.

    P.S. I should add that I originally went into St. John's in the bio major, but switched because I couldn't do well with the personal problems.

    You can do a DIY post-bac.

    Your fastest route to being a doctor will be to retake all F/D/C science coursework and apply to DO programs.

    If you're boning for the MD, do as above, but then get into a post-bac or better, a SMP, preferably one given by a med school

    Don't even think about going down this road until your personal problems are fixed.
