    2 W’s on Transcript Course Load

    Hello, all! I’ve just been kind of concerned about my academic record. I have 2 W’s on my transcript (one from Calculus II which I retook the following semester and received an A in, and the other one was in a business class I dropped due to a change in minor). I still have a 3.8-3.9 GPA and I...

    Coursework & Fieldwork No physics before Kinesiology (Pre-OT)

I have never taken physics and math is not a subject I am good at all. I have take pre-calc many years ago. NOTE: I have done pretty well in...

    Hi y'all! I'm in a bit of a pickle. I just calculated my official AMCAS gpa and it is ROUGH (3.2 overall, 2.80 sGPA). There was a definitely an upward trend (frosh sGPA 2.19 to senior sGPA3.6) My undergrad university replaced bad grades that were retaken with the better grade so I've never seen...

    Taking 9/2 MCAT and not sure about AAMC scores...

    (reposting this from my post from reddit!) So I'm registered to take the 9/2 exam and I finished FL 2 yesterday with a 504 (128/125/125/125). I'm really bummed about the bio score and CARS is usually my lowest so that was kind of expected. I felt pretty drained around the end of CARS, B/BC. I'm...

    LOR CONFUSION?!?!?!?!?!

    I am utterly confused about how to SUBMIT Lor's. My professor is more than willing to write it, but when I look the AMCAS website they have it written that I'm going to have to provide the professor with both a Letter ID and my AAMC ID. I have my AAMC ID, however I've tried searching on the...

    To retake or not retake

    Hey so this is my first time using SDN! I took the January 23 MCAT and felt pretty bad, but I'm not sure if it was anxiety or what. I basically crammed all of winter break and took Kaplan's online prep course. My Kaplan FL's weren't where I wanted them either, but they were also much harder than...
