I'm 27 and applying this year. I am also thinking of applying again for 08 if I don't get accepted. So, I was trying to decide which avenue would best increase the possibility of being accpeted in 08. My problem lies here. Since I am older, some of my course work was done a long time ago (jr college stuff) I was working full time and a part time job during those classes, so my GPA was not stellar.(2.7) I recently went to finish my BS and only worked part time and carried a decent GPA with my major being a 3.75. My last semester was a 4.0 with physics, nuerophysio, etc. Unfortunatley, my old coursework brings down my cumGPA to about a 3.1. Science is right around 3.0. So, for the next year: I was thinking of doing post bac work to help bring up my cumGPA and science as well. I did the math and if I took 24 credits of all science courses and made 4.0 for the year, it would only raise my GPA .15. Is that worth it? My cumGPA would be 3.25 and science 3.15. Still doesn't look so great. OR! I have a chance to start working at a Histology lab here in my town for the next year as a tech. They would train me and give me the chance to get certified. (I have been broke forever so the money sounds really tempting right now) Which should I do? I have worked four years full time at Voc Rehab with disbaled adults, two years part time as a Physical Therapy tech, 1 year as a psych tech, and 1 year as a clinical liaison for adults with mental illness. I have volunteered for four summers at children's camps, a summer as a chemistry tutor at my univeristy, and at the student ministries for two years. MCAT 27. Any help is GREATLY appreciated, I don't want to waste another year! Thanks!
