Best course of action?

Recommended Posts

My girlfriend is seriously thinking about applying to medical school. 

Her undergrad GPA is not competitive. 3.2/4 with a poor trend (4.0 first year and down thereafter). She is in the middle of a masters.

She clearly needs to improve her GPA to have any chance. Is a second bachelor her best course of action? 


Thanks guys!

My recommendation would be to finish the masters and start a second undergraduate degree.
While graduate grades don't count, holding a masters degree is a bonus on the application.
She should plan ahead of time which second undergraduate she plans to complete.
If everything goes well, she can have that second degree in hand in 2 years.
I am not sure about other schools but I know that if you hold 2 undergraduate degrees, McGill only considers your last one.
Best of luck !:)
