Having recently graduated, I wish to take graduate level classes in order to improve my gpa. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but as I understand I can either: 1) enroll in a post-bacc program 2) apply for a master's program 3) take the grad courses "a la carte" I am leaning towards the master's because 1) post-bacc programs are pricey and 2) per se, they seem not to provide you with some new skill set or knowledge that would be useful later. I think with respect to the latter at least a master's would give you that which you can use later -- at the least, if the MD doesn't happen, I have another degree. Please give me your own opinions regarding the dis/advantages of the three avenues above. Is one viewed more favorably by adcoms than another? One last thing-- I am curious about online degree programs. Anyone know what adcoms think of those? thanks.
