I have posted my question in the other thread but since I got no respond I've decided to start a new thread; if anyone can give some thoughts about my situation I'll be very grateful. I am currently a graduating economics major with an ok-ish GPA (3.4), and I have my general biology and general chemistry done (at a JC, B and Cs). Here's the scenario: Should I go for a post bacc program or not? Is it going to be sufficient for me to just take my o-chem and physics at a 4 yr college, get some medical experience at the mean time, and score well on the MCAT (what I am planning to do)? I have talked to a health advisor about my plan and the vibe I am getting is that she feels this is not going to make me competitive enough even if I score REALLY REALLY high on the MCAT. Personally however, I am really leaning towards just D.I.Y. the rest of my prereqs and really study for the MCAT rather than a full post bacc because of obvious financial and time reasons. What should I do? Also, if I do end up just taking the 2 classes after graduation, will it be count towards my UGPA as well or is it only SMPs and post bacc that can enhance your UGPA?
