    How much would a D in a prereq affect medical school admission? I messed up on my final and the professor was being anal and gave me a D. I really dont want to retake the course.

    Considering the lowest you can get in a pre-req is a C, you really have no choice. With that said, a D in a pre-req without being retaken sometime before application/matriculation WILL keep you out of medical school in the U.S. And when you do retake, be sure to get an A.

    Can you even get credit for a course with a D? It's been a while for me, but I thought that a C- was as low as my school allowed to "pass".

    I'm sort of in the same position. I got a D+ in a pre-req. I am retaking because I know I have to asnd I want to improve. I'm so worried; what if I don't get an A?
