Should I pursue a double major or masters?

  1. Feb 8, 2010 #1
    Im going to apply for med school this august. I'll have to wait a year. Instead of just graduating and sitting around, I was thinking I would continue taking classes. If anything, to continue to boost my GPA and make my application look better for next time in the event that I get rejected this time. my GPA right now is 3.415

    What do you think? Masters or 2nd major?

    Masters. Your most recent degree gets weighed most heavily, and you'll start off on a clean slate GPA wise. At best, a 2nd major may bump up your gpa by a few points (not many 'cause you probably have a ton of credits already), and judging by what other people have said at this forum, nobody looks at the 2nd major.
