I've pretty much settled on my schedule for my 6th semester, with one exception:Calc III. My freshman year was a low point motivationally, with my C+ in Calc I being the nadir. Since then I've had a 4.0 each semester. Now I'm about to start my 6th semester, which I view as my last semester of classes before applying to med schools. Is there any logic to taking Calc III to try and "offset" my iffy Calc I grade? My work ethic has improved leaps and bounds since then, so I have no doubt I'd do well in there, I just wonder if anyone has any insight as to whether or not I'm over thinking this, and if my time would be better used elsewhere. For what it's worth I am interested in the class, however I acknowledge it'd be a bit of a time commitment, and could potentially cut into my time spent shadowing and/or volunteering.
