I'm an undergrad at Reed College, which is known for deflated gpa's, so my final gpa is going to end up much lower than most applicants. I'm looking for a 1 year special masters program or regular MS that would help raise my gpa and expose me to classes that my small LAC did not offer. The program would have to be under 1 year long, as I would be attending during the cycle I apply to medical school. Any suggestions?

Pretty good SMP list here made by another person on SDN(paradoxic_toxic I believe):

These are all 1 or 2 years long, I'm not aware of any programs under 1 year. I'm not sure why you are going to be applying while in the SMP if you have a low gpa. It seems like you'd get the most benefit by applying after doing well in the SMP. Additionally, some of the SMPs have conditional acceptances/interviews.

Just an observation. If you apply while you are attending SMP, none of those grades will be in your record or application to medical school.
