Finish PhD or Leave with Master's and do Post-Bacc?

Hi there everyone, I am currently debating whether to finish my PhD in Oncology and take my not so competitive chances (GPA= 2.8 BS, 3.3 grad)and a 31 MCAT or leave with my Master’s degree and charge full on into a post-bacc program with a linkage program? I would not be saving any time this route (assuming I am accepted somewhere my first time out.)I would be making this decision in order to ‘ensure’ entrance into medical school as I have never gotten a good answer as to how schols will view/respect my PhD versus my unspectacular academic performance.

I would greatly appreciate all advice!

PS. The University of Cork-Ireland is actually my top choice. . .anyone with experience in that area?


Wiggle your big toe. Wiggle your big toe. Wiggle your big toe.

It’s the wood that should fear your hand, not the other way around. No wonder you can’t do it, you acquiesce to defeat before you even begin.
