Hi everyone, I am utterly confused about doing post-bacc coursework. Any comments would be appreciated. I will post the same thread in pre-allopathic so feel free to respond to just one. Basically, I am looking desperately to improve my 3.2 gpa. This year I intend to take post-bacc courses "a la carte" and am contemplating the merits of a MS or MPH (more on that later). Now, I am not at all intending to do a formal post-bacc program because my upper division science classes were fine except for a bad semester in which I got one D, and a C+ in physics II. Actually what is dragging me down more is my non-science classes. But in general, I am somewhat confused right now about the benefits of post-bacc work to improve my academic record. How much does it really help anyway? Even if I get a year's worth of A's my cumulative gpa would only go up by a tenth or so. Then there's the question of doing graduate work. Some schools say if you want to improve your undergrad gpa then take undergrad courses; others say graduate work is fine if not better. I just want to do what will make my academic record look the best, so for now I'm trying to walk the balance and take classes at both levels. Have you heard anything about this? What's your reasoned opinion? If any of you have taken courses like this "a la carte", you must have gone through similar questions as I did. How did you decide to take the particular classes you chose? Thanks!
