    Who wants to help a desperate post bacc with this one?

    how does pass/fail work on AMCAS? also, is it better to take a basic science class like physics pass/fail or change to non-credit status if you know you won't do well (C/B-)? Or can you still get into an SMP with a lower grade and higher MCAT score? Right now I'm basing this decision on getting into an SMP not on solely medical school so any input here would be very nice.
    But do you have to list non-credit classes on the AMCAS?
    I know they wouldn't count in your GPA, but do you have to report them?

    The search on SDN is disabled so I can't search for this topic :(

    Thanks

    right, eventually...but can you take them p/f if you see you can't make an A and then repeat them for a grade?

    A few Bs here and there arent so bad.

    If you were getting a C, then I would drop the class if I were you. If you cant drop, then maybe take it pass no pass and retake it later. But doing this a lot will not look good. :thumbdown:
