    I was just wondering, given you are not accepted into med school with your status,post bac degree, what would be some good post bac options? what would med schools like to see??

    for me - I am a psych major with a concentration on chem, bio, biopsych and neuroscience

    thanks!!!

    ... given you are not accepted into med school...
    Where? In which country/ies?

    ... with your status...
    What is the specifics of that status?

    ... post bac degree...
    What are the specifics of that post-bac degree (I interpret it as masters degree or more over bachelors, am I right?), does your bac/post bac studies include premed?
    And which duration of programs do you consider, 4 or 6 years?

    If you can tweet a little bit more, I can tweet a lot bit more as well

    Judging on your old post, you are probably in US. Have you tried applying to Ross or and AUC to get into their MERP program? SGU also have a program that give you a chance. Those three have Title IV loans along with 50 state accreditation with best shot into getting into a medical school in the US.

    It's kind of important to note that "post-bac" studies may or may not lead to a degree. It depends on the situation.

    For those who have a bachelor's degree but never completed the premedical sciences, "post-bac" studies generally consist of simply taking the pre-medical sciences in order to be eligible to apply for medical school. At some universities this may lead to a certificate, but rarely if ever an actual degree. There are organized post-bac pre-med programs at some colleges and universities in the US, while other students simply elect to take the pre-med science classes on their own. Either way is viable.

    In addition, though, graduate studies (masters or doctoral level) are also technically "post-bac" because they occur after the completion of a bachelor's degree.

    It is important to make sure that you know precisely which scenario applies to you, and what kind of "post-bac" studies you need for your situation.

    I will have all premed requiremtns bio, chem and physics, also stats and trig math

    and I am definitely interested in degree program

    Pretty much any Special Masters Program with strong medical school linkages and a track record of placing graduates into their own and other medical schools. If you plan to apply to US post-baccs, take a look at Postbaccalaureate Premedical Programs - Search . Georgetown, UWashington, Cornell come to mind as some of the best.

    If you plan to apply only to Caribbean schools, Ross University's MERP program may be something you want to look into.
