So I took a class this semester called Medical Anthropology. It is very interesting but it was a 1000 level anthropology class and I currently have a B+. Although I hope to bring it up to A, there is a very good chance I might be getting my second B in college.
There is one more 1000 level class to take, a history of the development of western medicine, and an intense philosophy class for my University to award me a Certificate in Conceptual Foundations of Medicine. It basically proves you went through these classes and now understand cultural barriers to medicine, the history of medicine, ethics, etc.
However, these classes are very difficult so if I'm going to work hard on it and chance a B or two to my GPA (currently a 3.98), I want it to be worth it.
Will the higher GPA or certificate be more impressive?
