Question of the Week: How Do I Know if I Need Postbac Courses? Friday, Apr 28, 2017 Hi HPA – I had a rough first year, but I’ve been doing better since then. I’m still worried that my GPA isn’t competitive for medical school and I’m thinking about doing a postbac program, but I’m not sure if I need one. Is there an approximate GPA where you’d definitely suggest doing a postbac program?
