I would like to ask you about my situation.
Last semester I got a D!! for my bio class :eek:
The course was so difficult for me as I am an international student,
believe it or not there were so many things to memorize and the lab practical
was awesome...(got 50 out of 100)

Fortunately other science courses are better than bioI
All A in Genchem(I,II) , Physics(I,II) , A- for OrgoI
and B- for BioII(cell).
and taking OrgoII and biochem for this semester (+studying for DAT :scared: ) pretty heavy loaded..

So I'm trying to retake the evo-bio again at this summer to boost up
my Science GPA. But I'm scared about taking the course again...
May be Bio classes doesn't fit to me that much
BTW I'm trying to apply for the 2006 cycle..
Shoud I retake it or just take other upper science courses in fall??

if you had gotten a C then you could have taken upper level classes, but since you got a D you have to retake it since schools ask for nothing lower than C's in pre-req couorses.

take it at a different school or take it in a summer session and dont make excuses !

If you do it in the summer session theres only so much that they can cram into a month.

Also take a different teacher.

Good luck.

Seems weird that you did so good in other classes and a D in that one.

I would bet the farm that you just blew it off.

If you repeat they wont care. You can tell them you were young and thats all that needs to be said.

No big deal. Just repeat it.

?
Consider that MUCH of dental school didactic classes will be bio based... if you feel that bio "doesn't fit you that much" you may want to reconsider this career? Just a question you should really ask yourself. Good luck!
