    Hi all,

    I found out today from a friend at school that there's a postbac at UCSD that admits students to their medschool if they get 3.5 and higher. Is that true???

    Thanks

    The only guarantee that i know is of RFU/CMS which takes in anybody who can pull a 3.0 with their course load which is about 3/4 medical classes and 1/4 masters/grad level classes

    The UCSD postbac program, from what I understand, only accepts underprivileged students who have had an social/educational disadvantage.

    I sure hope that's not true. Because I just spent a year and a half doing my post-bacc at UCSD and have heard no such thing.
