We can provide better advice if you give us specifics on your actual GPA (both overall and science).I am a fourth year pre med at USF and I was wondering what to do next. My gpa is subpar and I have been studying for the mcat and am planning on taking a gap year to strengthen my application for medical school. Does anyone have any advice as to what post bacc and or masters programs are good to help with gpa.
Post-bac are traditionally for non-science majors who have graduated and would like to pursue medicine. SMP's are traditionally for science graduates who need more buffer to increase their GPA and build off the courses you have taken. The best SMP's are the ones tied to a contractual agreement that allow admission into the foundational medical school running the SMP if you perform at the top of your class and/or ones that have a truly spectacular track record of having their graduates matriculate into medical school.
