SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
Again I would sincerely appreciate any advice, guidance anyone here can provide. Thank you in advance.
I actually applied to MPH programs for this fall. Do you suggest other masters program instead ?I don't recommend this very often, but you may benefit by completing a Masters program (assuming you can obtain a 3.8+ GPA). Combined with a solid MCAT score I think you can mostly put the little blemish on your record to bed.
At one point TFA was a golden ticket into professional school, but over the years it has accumulated detractors and the luster has somewhat worn off. It remains commendable to spend 2 years teaching in an underserved school, but the experience simply isn't as novel as it once was.
I have been trying to but I can't find the post you are referring to. A link would be very helpful. Thanks!

Aren't SMPs meant to improve your grade for pre-req classes? I didn't get stellar grades in those classes but they were average:
Gen Chem I & II: A-
Bio I & II: B
Physics I: B+, Physics II: B
Organic Chem I: B+, Organic Chem II: A-
What I am really concerned about is the non-degree grad classes I took and the dismissal because of failing. Would an SMP erase or shine less harsh of a light on the failing classes?

Broadly speaking a SMP shows that you can handle the workload. They are usually geared more toward applicants with GPAs closer to 3.0. You're only trying to put some distance between yourself and your failed classes/dismissal. A thesis MS with tuition remission and a stipend is one way to do the trick without going further into debt.
