    I've been reading some of the messages about post-bacc grades and i am getting the consensus that your post-bacc work should be a 4.0. Will a post-bacc GPA of 3.6 cut it?? Thanks!

    What exactly do you mean by "post-bac"?

    If you mean that you started from scratch taking your prereqs as a college graduate, then a 3.6 science cum is quite competitive for both allopathic and osteopathic schools.

    However, if you are simply retaking classes a 3.6 is still adaquate for most osteopathic schools.

    Actually I went on to earn 70 more credits and earned another 4 year degree (medical Technology). My first 4 year degree was Biology. I'm assuming that the second degree work will be considered post bacc correct?
