    >Hi,
    >> I really want to go to a UC medical school (UCSF is my dream choice!)
    >> but.. I had a bad semester my freshman year in which I got Cs in Calc2

    >> Should I take summer school classes to raise my GPA? (if so, should they
    >> be science courses to raise my science gpa?) Or should I just
    >> concentrate on getting As in ochem and my upper div bio classes and

    i dont think a C in calculus can hurt you alot...besides you seem to be doing well in other classes...just do your best for the rest of your classes :oops:

    I got a C in calculus freshmen year, and it didn't really affect me too much. I think you're fine. You should study hard and do well in the rest of your upper-level classes and of course try to rock the MCAT. If you think you're GPA is low, you'll have to try to compensate with a great MCAT score or a lots of volunteering, etc... (though the high MCAT score is the best way to do it in my opinion).
