I attend a division III school, and I just finished up my freshman year of college taking: FALL Bio I w/ lab:4.0 Eng 101:3.7 Genetics seminar:4.0 Healthcare:4.0 Intro to Sociology:4.0 SPRING Bio II w/ lab: 4.o Chem I w/lab:4.0 Ancient Roman History:4.0 French: 4.0 I am pretty proud of grades, and I was able to balance school and my sport--lacrosse;however, I barely was able to get everything done. As I am moving forward in the future with my academics, I hope I can handle it with my lacrosse load in the spring. Lacrosse is a huge commitement that takes up roughly 20 hours of my week, and that doesnt include traveling, film, etc. My academics will always come first, but I just want honest opinions on if lacrosse will give me an edge on getting into a medical school in the future. Ive got Orgo and upperlevel bio classes next year, and I want to keep up my GPA without having to sacrifice any grades for my sport. On a side note, I have a starting position on my team and we are in a very competitive conference, and I absolutely love the sport.
