    Should I go back to undergrad repeat some classes that I didn't get good grades or should I take some graduate classes that I have never taken before?

    any advice? :(

    And I thought that biochem is the hardest class, then I looked at the microbiology class. my god! that book looks like a book for genius, it looks so complicated!

    what am i gonna do? tell me, tell me please. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

    Hi. It should all boil down to who's teaching the classes. At my school, we have got the good, the bad and the ugly nailed down pretty much.

    I would retake maybe one class (like organic), and then take maybe 1 or 2 upper level sciences that you've never taken before. This way you can retake one class, but also show that you can take new classes and handle the courseload...good luck :)
     
  5. You should look into post bac programs as well. I think there is a list of all of them on the AAMC website. Some of them have strong ties with medical schools where the students that participate in them are highly considered for admission after completion.
