Hi everyone! I'm planning on enrolling in an academic enhancer SMP/post-bac this fall. So far I've gotten into Tulane's cell & molecular science MS, Touro University's MSMHS program, Barry University's masters of biomedical sciences, Kansas City University of Medicine's biomedical science MS, the Berkeley Extension post-bac, and my application was selected to continue after interviewing for Temple University's ACHS program.
I'm very grateful to have heard nothing but good news in terms of my applications, but now I'm faced with a tough decision to make. I was hoping to hear from former/current students in any of these programs, as well as anyone else with advice as to which program will give me the best shot at an acceptance into medical school.
Thanks in advance!

As someone who has done a postbac, its generally better to do a DIY one rather than one of these enhancers unless they have a strong connection to a medical school where if you do well enough they basically accept you.

Go with the cheapest tuition, a program that has linkage to the med school (like a guaranteed interview or acceptance if your GPA is > X) and is one year in length.

I have interviewed candidates from all of these programs, BTW.

I mostly applied to masters' programs as opposed to certificate programs since I'd rather pay for a degree than basically a fifth year of undergrad. Do admissions committees favor one over the other, or is it just all about the GPA (assuming similar classes)?
