Hello, I recently graduated this semester with a bachelors degree in psychology. I went to community college for 2 years and then 2 years at UH. The problem i'm having now is trying to figure out what programs I should apply for in my post-bac. I wanted to go to medical school but my gpa isn't the best and I felt like I wouldn't get in so now im aiming for physican assisant. I need some advice on what I can do I want to do a masters in medical science but what schools will accept me?

What state are you in?
Have you taken any science classes?
You can do post bacc at same university where you graduated from by taking science classes.
I think PA needs same pre-reqs as med school.
The below is just an example for master program requirement.
  • Completed the following prerequisite coursework with a grade of C or better:
    -4 semester credits of Biology/Zoology with lab
    -4 semester credits of Inorganic Chemistry with lab
    -4 semester credits of Organic Chemistry and/or Biochemistry with lab
    -4 semester credits of Math/Computer Science
    -2 courses of College English
