Hey all. Before I begin, let me just say that I'm a naive first semester college student (Bio BA -- I like it =)). I just got a B on my first general chemistry test (I knew the material backwards and forwards, the small mistakes got me). I'm just wondering what exactly constitutes a bad grade on my transcript in the eyes of adcoms? If I get a B in first semester chem, what of it? I know that the average applicant has a science GPA of 3.5. I'm just a little freaked because the material wasn't hard at all, yet I made a mistake.
