    I was thinking about doing Post-Bacc study before applying to Osteopathic school for the 2001 school year. I was wondering if that would better by chances at being accepted. I'm graduating this spring. Please help.

    Well if you haven't taken any premed courses, then a post-bacc program is REQUIRED for application to either allopathic or osteopathic medical schools.

    If you mean post-bacc as in taking courses after getting the BA, it could help you pull a bad GPA up.

    You do not have to do a post bacc though it is advisable. I know of a student who just took the required course work on her own and is now in medical school. But a postbacc is good. Esp if they have a linkage porgram with a medical school and provide a good environment. Serveral good ones are Columbia, Bryn Mawr, and NYU check out the AAMC website for more info search post baccs
