First and foremost, I would like to apologize if a similar question has been answered before. I searched and found similar posts without answers, and read the last 10 or so pages of this forum and didn't find what I was looking for. Here is my situation: I recently graduated with a BA degree in entrepreneurship. I had thought for some time that I wanted be both successful and to help people and thought I would do this by making money and giving it away. Well, I figured that a degree could help teach me the fundamentals of business, but couldn't completely capture the essence of entrepreneurship, so I took what I thought I needed from my classes without much concern over my GPA, and a result graduated with a 3.1 grade point average. Well now, a short time later, I have found my fair share of success and find that I'm really lacking any passion or feeling of achievement. In the past, I have spent much time thinking about medical school but always decided against it. Now, I realize that this would be an excellent way to help others and at the same time give me something to really be passionate about. I have talked with several M.D.'s and have decided that this is what I want to do. However, my degree includes none of the prerequisites for medical school and my grade point average is very low, at 3.1. What are my options? I know I will need to schedule a meeting with various university employees, but I want to know what you think. I know with dedication I could earn a 4.0 or very close in all of the classes I need, but I don't really know if taking them alone is going to help me enough. I live in Texas, and the only post-bac or similar program that I can find around here is the one at the UNT health science center, but you must be a science major to be accepted as far as I can tell, because you actually earn a master's. This excludes me. Should I go back to school and earn a B.S. degree in a science? I'm not sure how the process works, but if the school keeps the first two years of my college work, I believe my GPA was between 3.25 and 3.35 during this time. If this is the case, an A in the remaining classes could probably bring me up to around a 3.6 or slightly better, at the cost of probably two years work. I also have little experience with extra cirricular activities relating to this field. I know a doctor I could shadow, and I'd be more than happy to volunteer somewhere, but nothing as of yet. I also don't think I could contribute much at this point in the research area with such little science background. Finally, I know this may sound very presumptuous, but I am very confident that after taking my required classes, my MCAT score would be very competitive. Test taking has always been my strong suit. In most of the standardized testing throughout my life, I have scored in the top percentile, and my girlfriend recently took the LSAT exam, and my test scores on her practice exams were very high. I did see one post that said a high MCAT with a lower GPA may indiciate laziness, but I'm not sure what to think. I know this post was wordy, but I thank you in advance for reading it and for giving me your honest advice.
