I was just wondering what medical schools consider as a good GPA for a master's degree.
depends on the program, but i'd really say it needs to be above a 3.5 minimum.
i was told...as long as you get the degree we don't care...
The prevailing opinion seems the be that graduate work should be easier, or at the least less competitive, than undergraduate work. In my case, this was true (3.2 ov/3.0 sc UG, 3.8 sc GR). If its a "hard" science degree you will get some bonus points for difficulty and relevance to medicine. If its an MPH in Public Health Management or something, get yourself a damn good GPA
My graduate degree got me from no interviews after UG to a pretty much instant interview and acceptance after graduate school. Good luck!
I am in the same predicament as you UG wise, and just wanted to know which Master's program did you do? Was it 1 yr or 2 yr?
my MPH (at UCLA) was NOT easy, at least in my opinion....usually there's serious grade inflation in grad school, but not the case here i think......still, a good public health school.....lots of cool people to meet.....
I did a 2 year MS in Toxicology. Doesn't have a hell of a lot to do with medicine, but the med school I got into was very research based and seemed to respond well to it. I went with this degree because I honestly thought my chances were shot, so I wanted to at least be able to work for a pharm company. Just goes to show... just when you give up, you get a break!
