Hi,

I've started my DIY post bacc year where I'm taking upper levels courses at local universities to make up for my low uGPA. By the end of next spring I plan on completing anywhere from 24-30 credit hours. What schools (DO + MD) look favorably or reward those who did well in post-bacc. And is 24-30 credit hours enough? Or should I do more before I apply to medical schools?

Thanks!

Also, should I stick with doing a post-bacc (taking upper level classes) past 24-30 credit hours, or should I enroll in a SMP or masters type of the sort (that is geared towards helping low-GPA students). I was looking at EVMS medical masters, NSU MSBS, and Mercer's Masters in Pre-Clinical Sciences.

What was your GPA before starting the post-bacc? What will it be after the post-bacc is completed?
DO schools reward reinvention, @Goro can chime in with more information on that.

Personally, I think that if you do well in a DIY post-bacc that is about 30 credits or so (and get A's) you should be just fine.
