Hi, everyone I hope all is well! Okay, so I'm expect to graduate with a 3.3 GPA. And only 2-3 of the science classes that I have taken will help go towards med school (at least that's what I was told, since the rest are lower level). I want to go to med school but I'm unsure of what route to take. Should I retake the classes I got a "C" in to help boost my GPA and then apply to a post bacc program/DIY? Apply to a master's program? Is there a route that I don't know about? I've called a few med school advisors but no one has returned my call yet. Please don't eat me alive! Lol

yes, especially for DO schools, as they count only the better grade.

Yes, if you're boning for an MD degree.
and then apply to a post bacc program/DIY?

I prefer SMPs to post-bac programs, especially if the former are given at a med school.
Apply to a master's program?

Most pre-med advisors have the brains of a flea. You'll get good advice here in this forum.
