    Grade forgiveness effects?

    Hi I didn't take highschool chem and wound up with a D in Chem 1. I'm doing grade forgiveness, which will save my gpa from being affected. However, Im pretty sure the D will stay on my transcripts. How do vet schools factor this in? Do they calculate what my gpa would be with the D in there?

    Vet school‘s that don’t look at science gpa

    Do y’all know what schools don’t consider overall science gpa. What schools just look at their required course for science grades? My science gpa overall is horrendous. Also, what schools are leaning more towards experience than gpa?

    Considering a gap year...

    So, I'm a senior right now, studying for my finals and this semester I've found really hard. Attending class and focusing in class had been tough, and this will probably be the worst of my semesters. I actually think I might be just slightly burning out and I'm heavily considering a gap year...

    Knocked while I'm already down (RANT/ pre-vet help?)

    I started off freshman year great. I'm a biology major. I had a 3.7 gpa first semester. Second semester rolls around, i'm in 100% science classes and a psych class, and I end up with straight C's and a cumulative gpa of 2.7. I'm SO disappointed in myself even though I did work really hard; but I...

    Which Vet Schools Weight Grades Heavily?

    I applied to my IS vet school and was denied. They do not take GPA into account aside from having above a 3.0 GPA. I have veterinary and animal experience, but I guess not enough.
