Hi there - I obtained a B.S. in Biology during undergrad (4 years ago) but spent my post-graduate career working in the financial sector. I recently decided to return to medical school. I had a 3.64 GPA during college, but still need to sit for the MCAT and take Organic Chem, Physics, and Biochem.
I’m trying to figure out what path to med school makes sense for me (and is most efficient). I don’t want to retake courses I already took during undergrad and money is a factor. However, I also want to set myself up to be a strong applicant when the time comes. Am I better off applying to a formal post-bacc program or can I get by taking my remaining pre-reqs on an ad hoc basis? I’m also considering trying to get a research position while I complete my courses…open to any thoughts you might have for me. Many thanks!
