I received my bachelor's degree back in April 2018 and after 2 failed med school application cycles in Canada I turned to US MD and DO schools. I realized I am missing many prerequisite courses (i.e. English + some lab courses) and was looking into post-bacc programs that could help me get the missing credits and apply to the US. Are there any post-bacc programs (with labs, so assuming I cannot do online) that you guys would recommend? I've heard of a lot of shady programs so I'm looking for some feedback. I found https://www.medschoolimg.com/premed-postbaccalaureate this program so far which is pretty close to me in Toronto. Has anyone heard of it? Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks!!
I want to apply to MD schools but i've had an abysmal first 2 years of college and I'm currently in my winter term of 3rd year GPA 1st year: 1.98 (F, Fsummer, 2D+s, Cs, 2Bs) GPA 2nd year: 2.75 (Cs and Ds, As in 2nd term) GPA 3rd year: 3.9 (?) ive had all As so far and 1 A+ MCAT: 518 (best: OrgChem&CriticalAn, worst: Phys/Math) ECs: Im doing 1st year of research (research component) I worked a part time job (first 2 years) I'm trying to get my book published (nonfiction/social-political, this process costs looots of $$$) I volunteered at hospital 3 years I volunteer with my church, public library, teach english etc in my community I've run a health blog for 5 years now (mostly mental, I make a lil cash from it too here and there) I speak 4 languages outside english fluently (? is this even an ec) I'm almost positive I have to do either a post-bacc or a Master's but even then are my chances too dim? Do I need more ECs? Another Bachelor degree? I have retook some of the courses should I retake all? Reasons for my failure is 2015 was a horrible year for me and my family, but I take full responsibility for not dropping those courses Thank you for your time!
