    WAMC sGPA trends w/ 517 MCAT

    Upward Trend GPA, Help?

    How do medical school admission teams regard GPA trends? My GPA trend: Started at a 2.4, now it is at 3.68. I suffered from severe depression, but got help, which is why my GPA increased so much. The past year I have taken over 23 credits each quarter (some 26 credits), averaging over a 3.9...

    How early is too early to start thinking about SMPs/Post-Baccs?

    For example, could a freshman do anything to be able to "already know" they're going to have to do a Post Bacc? Wouldn't it be ridiculous to do very well for the next 3 years but in order for medical schools to forgive 1 bad year you need that extra year of post-bacc?

    Admissions Stigma on Failing a Class

    Hopefully this can relate to people who had to fail before succeeding. I failed and retook College Algebra my freshman year at a private school in which I was a miserable student athlete. I understand the MD application does not replace grades, but the DO application does. I have raised my GPA...

    Can post-bacc performance mitigate the influence of the worst of undergrad GPA trends?

    While I am able to find plenty of threads that touch on the significance of common poor gpa trends (i.e. steady downward trend, v-shaped trend, and bell shaped trend) in light of post-bacc performance, I have been unable to locate a thread that specifically highlights the trends I have. I've...

    So i know the GPA's that are important are: bcpm, and cGPA (cumulative) However it seems that bcpm are just the med school requirement classes. Intro bio, general + organic chemistry, physics and math. But what about upper division biology courses like Genetics, Biochemistry, Physiology...

    Failing Organic

    Hi SDN! So I am about to be a junior this fall. I decided to take ochem this summer and actually just took my final for ochem 1 today. I am scared I will not pass the class with at least a C- because I am pretty sure I bombed the exam. How is retaking it in the fall going to affect my medical...

    is no credit an F?

    Hi The first time I took Organic Chemistry in 2010 I received a grade of NC. During this time, my advisor told me that AMCAS will count the grade as an F. I took time off from being pre-med and re-took the class and got an A. Would you happen to know whether AMCAS counts NC as an F? I found...
