Hello, To summarize, I'm a hopeful Pre-PA student who has unfortunately messed up quite a lot during my Undergraduate years and ended with a cGPA of 3.02 (my school offers grade-forgiveness), and a scGPA that I didn't even bother trying to calculate given that it would obviously be under a 3.0. This was due to personal arrogance in thinking I could handle such a rigorous courseload while also working and thus not taking it as seriously as I should. Thankfully, I was accepted into a Masters of Biomedical Sciences program and am enrolled currently in hopes of taking more advanced upper-leve
Hey all, Been reading a lot about applicants who have taken a biology/health-science/etc. masters program in an effort to improve their GPA or to "show" PA schools that they can handle tough, upper level coursework. I was wondering what you'd consider the "cut-off" to be for when you should or should not pursue a masters? Anything less than 3.7? 3.6? 3.5? 3.4?

If anyone feels uncomfortable commenting their questions on here or need a super fast res
I started freshman year of the B Sc this past spring. I have been taking accelerated classes (mostly by schedule chance not by pure choice) and was getting a cumulative 4.0 That was until BIO 111. I found out after starting back at college that I'm pregnant (very yay but surprise!) and the symptoms have been kicking my backside. I blame being older haha. Anyway, my grade for BIO hasn't been weighted as yet and I've got two weeks until the finals, but so far I'm getting a B/B- which if I'm right drops me to 3.6 overall. How horrific is that? I'm taking 17 hours this fall, and I purpo
