    Currently I have applied to USF-Masters of Medical Sciences and waiting to hear something on the 16th of April.

    Anyone else in the same boat?

    Other places:
    LECOM
    UMDNJ

    (I am a southern girl, and would be grateful to stay here for my post-bac program.)

    Depending upon why you need to go the postbaccalaureate route, there are a number of options available for you. There is a forum dedicated to Post Baccalureate programs here.

    Here is a listing of Premedical post-baccalaureate Programs.

    Here is the AAMC listing of Pre medical Postbaccalaureate programs

    Barry University offers a program too.

    http://www.barry.edu/bms

    Another good idea is to look through a copy of the MSAR and the Minority Student Opportunities books from the AAMC. Most, but not all, medical schools have some sort of post baccalureate program.

    You should speak with the Office of Multicultural/Diversity/Minority Affairs at whichever medical schools you are interested in applying to in the future and ask them for guidance on what would be best to help you with getting accepted to medical school.

    Good Luck!!!!:luck:

    Keep us abreast of how things are going for you.

    Is the program structured or unstructured? A SMP or are you just taking classes to as an informal post bac?

    Hey wiseprincess227 or anyone else, since you have been looking at UMDNJ, you may try looking at Drexel's post-baccalaureate programs. Some are stronger than others. But there a 3 different ones.. IMS, MSP, and DPMS.
    The good thing too, their deadline isn't up yet just fyi.

    Although Hunter College is a city college, it has a reputable science program for a city instituiton. It is well known by the local dental/med schools.

    However, do not underestimate the difficulty of the large science classes.
