I made C's in both OChem I and II and am wondering if I should retake both of them? I see it as another way for me to study for the MCAT and obviously another chance for me to get an A in both. Knowing what I know now and since I have taken other chemistry classes such as clinical chemistry, I know I can make an A in them. I finish my bachelor's in Medical Technology this summer.

Just to point out, I did make A's in Inorganic Chem I and II and A's in all the Clinical Chem courses

If they were C's and not C minuses, then conventional wisdom says not to retake them. Instead, take Biochemistry or other advanced chem course and do well.

Don't retake them. Do like Xcited says, and make biochem your red-headed step-child.

i dont get it, are they special in some way besides from the fact that their head may look a bit of on fire?

I'm actually in the same boat for this coming application cycle. I wish I had taken biochemistry as a replacement, but I think (hope) you can redeem yourself with a high BS score (even though organic chemistry has been pretty sparse on the MCAT lately).

I did take Biochemistry and got a B+ and as I said before I made A's in the Clinical chemistry courses. Xcited, does that sound like it helps me? Thank you to everyone that has replied.
