You can pursue post-baccalaureate (“post-bac”) coursework or programs for one of two reasons: either you want to raise your math and science grades before applying to medical school even though you have completed all pre-med requirements, or you want to apply to medical school but did not meet the pre-med requirements as an undergraduate.
