SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello everybody. I was just wondering if anybody could give me some advice. I'm a pre-medicine freshman and I am considering dropping a course this semester. I did poorly in chemistry last semester (a D, to be more specific) b/c I was overwhelmed by the many courses I was taking. As a result, I planned to really buckle down and not get any lower than a B- in any course for the rest of my four years in college. Now that I am considering withdrawing from calculus and taking it over the summer, I am wondering whether this will further decrease my chances of getting into a U.S. medical school. The grade will be a Withdrawal Pass (in case anyone was wondering). Also, do you think I have to retake the chemistry class that I got a D in if I pass the next chemistry course? Thanks!
