    In my opinion, you'll be fine. You don't have to have honors in medicine to be competitive. I was informed that programs look more at the surgical grades. However, just make sure you get honors in ophthalmology.

    Ophtho involves a lot of surgery and many programs look at your performance in this clinical rotation. I've been told by many faculty that this is an important grade.
