    Hi guys, I'm new to the forums here.

    So I just finished my freshman year at undergrad and messed up pretty bad. Obviously there are no excuses to performing badly but my best friend passed away and my mom had an emotional breakdown which lead me to developing insomnia. Still, these things have helped me grow as a person and I believe I'll be able to do well in the future.

    First Semester :This semester was an absolute disaster

    Calculus I :F
    General Chemistry 1 Lecture:W
    General Chemistry Lab:W
    Introductory Biology I Lecture:B-
    Introductory Biology I Laboratory: D
    College Composition II: B-


    Second Semester
    General Chemistry I Lecture:C-
    General Chemistry I Lab: C
    Introductory Biology II Lecture: B+
    Introductory Biology II Lab: B+

    Cumulative GPA: 2.4

    Here are my stats:

    Freshman --> Senior
    3.35 --> 2.4 --> 3.85 --> 3.78 --> 3.83 --> 3.94 --> 4.0 --> 4.0

    The dream lives on.

    As it currently stands, there is no way to give you an honest answer. If you can get a similar trend to 99445, I think you will be in a solid place to apply down the road... That said, it is very hard to make a comeback like that. Best of luck, my friend.

    I am very sorry to hear about your losses. I hope that these experiences can help fuel your passion for healthcare and a life devoted to safeguarding others' loved ones.

    You can't get into medical school with persistently bad grades.
    Figure out what you are doing wrong and fix it. Stat.
    Your school has people who are paid to help you do this.

    As of right now? Zero.
    Seek out your school's learning or education center and get help with learning styles, test taking skills, and time mgt. Go seek counseling if you're having trouble with coping, or lacking coping skills. These are needed in med school.

    Retake all F/D/C science coursework.

    Fix your deficits and then ace everything from now on.
