    Not that bad. You have been on SDN long enough to know this. Overall GPA is fine coming from a top tier UG (unless it's Harvard huehuehue)

    Just be careful not to apply to a med school that has a stated requirement of a C+ or better in the prerequisites. Even with those, if they allow a substitution, you might be fine if you got a good grade in Biochem.

    Yeah, I was thinking about making it up by taking biochem and pchem together next semester. If I get an A in those, that should suffice, correct?

    A high grade in Biochem would redeem a C in OChem II, for most schools. But there are some schools that will require OChem II and not accept a C grade no matter what excellent Chem grades follow. Just be sure to read websites carefully and avoid those when you apply.
