    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.

    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 :p

    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?

    Thanks!

    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!
