    How much would a sudden drop in grades affect admissions chances?

    Hi all, As the title says, I'm wondering how vet schools may judge a sudden drop in grades. For more context, and why I'm so worried, I graduated undergrad in biochemistry with a 3.9. Currently, however, I'm taking a prereq that I didn't have the foresight to complete during undergrad and...

    Low uGPA... Post Bacc program? GPA enhancer? Please help me!

    I graduated with a low gpa of 2.95 (BS in engineering) at a 4 year private university last year. I did poorly in all of my science classes with mostly Cs and a few Bs (no excuses for my bad grade. I don’t think I was ready for the rigor of a college level course in my first 2 years of college...

    Transfer Credits?

    So I go to an ivy league but summer courses are all too expensive for me. I intend on taking college courses at Rutgers which would be much more bearable. Since I can list all college courses for AMCAS, would it be fine if I take biochemistry at Rutgers without transferring it over to my ivy...

    Grades and programs

    Hello all! So this is a very intimidating time in my life. I graduate from Undergrad in December and right now I have a 3.38, so I expect that by the time I graduate I will have somewhere along the mid 3.4's. My Psych GPA is ~3.6, and my minor (Business) is ~3.5. Freshman year I started off...

    I was just curious if Medical school really looks at Science Lab classes? I mean obviously they look at it but do they look at it at a high level. What I mean is whenever people talk on this forum everyone just talks about how they performed Intro Bio, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and...
