    My upward trend

    Hello, I am currently a pre-med student, and I wanted to gain some perspective on my situation. During my freshman year, I lost motivation and unfortunately ended my first semester with a 1.6 GPA... I know. My second semester was 3.91. Ever since then, I have had a 4.0 throughout my sophomore...

    Might Fail Organic Chemistry II Twice. Will this ruin my chance of going to Pharmacy School and Grad

    So I am currently taking Organic chemistry 2 lecture for the 2nd time and it is finals week. I believe I am going to get a D or C in it. The first time I completely failed it. I didn't really try because I was focusing on my other classes. My priorities were all screwed just like it is this...

    Individual grades vs. overall?

    Hi everyone, I have one C in my transcript in ochem II and the rest of my grades are mostly As and some Bs. I think I can still end up with a 3.8+ GPA as long as there is no other major slip ups like this. Would having a C in a prerequisite course, but still having an okay overall GPA lower...

    Should I get a LOR from a class that I got a C?

    I got a C in medicinal chemistry class. I contacted my professor and she was willing to write a letter of recommendation for me.

    Orgo II Grade Options

    While I was at a school, I was taking Orgo II but due to personal issues, I had to withdraw it. However, since it was too late to withdraw, I got an incomplete, but since I never completed the class on the time allotted, it turned into a F. I never took care of it and ended up graduating with...

    Can I still be competitive?

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this so I apologize if this isn't where this is supposed to be. I am currently a sophomore in college pursuing cellular/molecular development.

    How does having many A- look on the application?

    The school i go to uses a 4.0, 3.9, 3.7, 3.6..etc grade system. for example my physics class required a 98-100% to get a 4.0, 96-97% 3.9..etc and I have a lot of science courses in the 3.6-3.8 range, which on the AMCAS conversion sheet for my school, it converts to an A- .I am clueless as to if...

    Bad grade in calculus...switch schools?

    I just finished my second semester at a prestigious state university and I ended with a 2.8 GPA. I had a 3.2 GPA before I got a D in my calculus class (had a B in the class until the final screwed me over). I am really sad that this D will be on my transcript forever. I actually did better in...

    Bad Anatomy Grade

    Wasn't sure where to put this, so if it's wrong let me know and I'll change it. I'm currently a junior/senior at Virginia Commonwealth University (technically a senior but I changed my major to exercise science from mechanical engineering last year so I'm behind a year). I'm planning to apply...

    First time posting here ever so I apologize if it's been asked before. I'm a sophomore in college and right now my GPA is a 3.48. My pre-vet advisor says I have a good chance at getting into Auburn because my state buys seats at their school and my GPA isn't terrible. HOWEVER, I have come to...

    Talking about bad grades

    Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a good start to the semester! I was wondering if I could get some advice on how to talk about bad grades to a professor. For a certain class, I don't meet the prerequisite grade of the required class, however, I signed up for this class regardless. I now...

    Substitute general Chem 1b with another class

    Hello! My undergrad university has a quarter system. I received a c- in Chem 1b because of personal reasons (rocky times and well.. It was my fault too) . To my knowledge, medical schools don't accept c- for their prerequisites. But my school doesn't let me retake c- because it's considered...

    LOR Question 2 grades, 2 classes, same professor

    So like my title says, I took Immunology with the professor early in my college career (sophmore), and it was a huge mistake. I wasn't ready for it, and got an F in it. I tried to withdraw from it, but it was past the deadline, and got swamped. Forward 2 years to now. I took a histology course...
