    I have a 3.5 avg gpa and about a 3.35 science gpa. But I'm really worried because I got a C- in Physics 3. Do you think med schools will reject me mainly for this reason?

    If you are on a trimester system, they probably won't like it. The phy 1-3 is equal to phy 1&2 in a regular system which both grades need to be over a 2.00 (C). So from what I know, they probably won't take it. If you just took an extra semster of physics then I don't think it will kill you.

    Like always, call a school and find out.

    I don't think it's going to make or break you. They're much more interested in your overall grades than one grade. And, if you're talking about DO school, they're also interested in more tangible factors such as who you are and what you've done.
