Only you will determine if you could get into medical school, that's 100% on you. We can only advise as to ChancesHello,
I had made a post in the past that recorded my progression as a medical school applicant from my first to, what is now my fourth, semester. This is a repeat thread for the same question with some updates, and I want to explain my entire situation with some better context, and hopefully receive a truthful answer that doesn't sugarcoat whatever reality I may be in for getting into medical school. To begin, in my first semester at my undergraduate university (top 20, heavily deflating undergrad school for context). I received a B in Gen chem and Lab, a B+ in Sociology, a C+ in Calculus, and a Pass in Spanish. My second semester I received an A- in Biology (lab included in class), an A- in a classics class, and a C- in statistics. I took Organic Chem (with lab) over the summer and received an A. My third semester I received a B+ in Biology, an A in biology Lab, an A- in an english class, and an A in another elective. However, due to circumstances that I can explain in the comments, I Pass/no pass'ed a physics class (ultimately receiving a Pass). I stand at a 3.250 GPA at the moment, and currently have hard A's across the board in my fourth semester (finals coming up), including two elective classes, ochem 2, and ochem 2 lab. I plan on taking the second half of the physics series this upcoming summer, and taking calculus-based physics my junior year to replace the physics 1 class I received a P for in my third semester. By the end of the summer, I should stand at a 3.5 if I do well In my upcoming physics class. I have been told by many of my older colleagues that the upper division courses at my university are much easier to do, and for pre-meds, most consistently receive 3.9+ for their final four semesters quite easily. This means I can, in all realism, receive a 3.75-3.8 overall GPA (with similar stats for stem gpa), by the time I graduate. My only question is were the actions I did in my first two-three semesters detrimental to me getting into medical school, despite having a very powerful upward trend, and still ending with a good GPA, which when accompanied by a potentially powerful MCAT, will potentially make me a great applicant. I just want some honest answers so I know where I stand in this whole process and if I have a legitimate chance to get into a top medical school (state of residence and education is California by the way). Thank you for reading this and please give me your feedback as best you can.
