Anyone in a similar situation as me? After the completion of freshmen year, I ended up with a 3.5 gpa. Nothing shabby but nothing great. That summer I decided that, while working 35+ hours a week, I would take organic chemistry and ended up with a B first session and a C second session, completely destroying my gpa and bringing it down to a 3.3. So I decided to shape up and I pulled a 4.0 last semester, and this semester is starting to look similar. On top of that I took a practice mcat last week, and ended up doing better than I though I would (a 25 without any serious studying and my first mcat ever) which makes me feel a lot more confident for the August mcat. I just wanted to see if anyone else was feeling pretty good at this moment? The only thing I could think of that would be better is to have an acceptance already instead of having to wait another whole year to begin applying.
