    I am a freshman. Last semester I received an A in Calculus 1. This semester I got a B- in Calculus 2. Med Schools I don't think will like this. And it will hurt my gpa. should I retake?

    Might want to change your YaleBound to "regular" MD school bound..

    Totally kidding, but i wouldn't retake a B-. I have a couple of them and my sGPA is still around 3.6ish i also have a C+ but i made some A's and it completely erased it trust me just move on even if you get an A that averages out to be a B/B+ at best

    Unless you're gunning for D.O., retaking Calc 2 won't do anything more for your GPA than taking "Intro to (insert easy course here)" will.
