This is my first time posting here and I badly need advice. I have had a long roller coaster career as an undergrad but graduated last may with a 5 year bachelors and about 150 credits. In a nutshell, my first 2 years were fraught with personal problems and I attended a prestigious school of the sciences that was less than understanding and denied me special accomodations which resulted in poor grades in the core sciences. This is not to say I did not understand the core sciences, I took the MCAT exam 3 years later and scored straight 10's(30) without the aid of an MCAT study aid.
I attended 3 years at another school and achieved decent grades and completed all the remaining med school requirements. Unfortunately, my combined grades from both schools resulted in about a 3.0 GPA. I have what it takes for med school and have the dedication to medicine to stay motivated, but not sure where to go from here. I applied to about 8 med schools and was soundly denied, but did not apply to any osteopathic schools. Should I take an undergrad post bacc to retake all the core sciences and demonstrate my competency in the sciences or should I push harder and take a graduate postbacc? I am under the impression that undergrad GPA in the core sciences is key to admission officers but I am afraid of how they will view them seeing as how I took all those courses twice. Keep in mind my grades have clearly trended up as my college career progressed, I just have those first 2 years on my transcript that just look ugly.
