Bad grades: End of Sophomore 1st semester


New Member
May 21, 2011
    Finished my sophomore year 1st semester at Ivy League School (Harvard, Yale). Ended up with 3.45 cGPA and 3.2 science GPA.

    Of my science classes so far:
    B+ in chem
    A in Math1
    B in Math2
    C+ in Bio1
    B- in Bio2
    A in Ochem

    I know, pretty bad. But, working in lab, nonprofits, leadership, hospital volunteering, shadowing, clinical work.

    I think Bio is just my weak point. Certain grades are bad from freshman year. But, I made a B- in Bio2 in sophomore 1st semester.

    Any recommendations? Should I change career paths lol?
