How much will a C in Organic Chemistry hurt me? For my first term of Orgo, I received a C.. I still have one more term left but I doubt I could do much better. I've done everything I can for this class, and I just don't know what else to do. My problem isn't so much understanding the material as it is finishing tests in time, something a tutor wouldn't be able to help with. All I do is study for Orgo and it obviously still kicked me in the butt. If I plan on applying to med school, how much will this C kill my chances?
