I'm a Canadian applicant with a 3.49 GPA (no trend), 34Q, research experience, clinical experience,

which of the following glide year programs would you think have the potential of helping my application more?

1) MS Cell and Molecular Biology
- 30 credits, 18 of which come from courses like Pathophysiology, Immunology, Embryology, Molecular Biology of Cancer, Gross Anatomy
- internship at hospital

2) MS Physiology
- 64 credits, including Medical physiology, medical biochemistry, medical microanatomy, clinical embryology, neurophysiology, and a literature review thesis paper
- formal doctor shadowing program

The second of the two is an SMP. Do I really need an SMP? Or can I get away with the more laid-back course-load of #1?
I don't know about quality, but certainly the latter has won the quantity battle. What type of internship is the first one?

no neither are at Georgetown. 3.75 GPA looks awesome. I don't think you should even go anywhere near an SMP!! Do well on that MCAT though. Why don't you take a review course?
