Members don't see this ad.
So i I've been looking up organic classes for the universities in my city and all the universities only offer organic 1 in the fall! ): perks of living in a small town...
The only one that offers it in the summer is 1 and a half hours away so if I were to go take it in the summer I'd cost over $2,000 for tuition and living as opposed to waiting next till fall and only pay a 3rd of that.

I was set to apply in June but with a D+ In a prereq I feel like my application will be tossed aside and have no chance.

What should i do? I wish I could retake the class this spring to cover it up but I might have to wait a whole year!

I wouldn't mind moving away for 6 weeks in the summer but the price is a lot considering one class...

if you live in California, UCR offers the entire ochem series (ochem 1,2,3 in 3 week intervals). The professors are usually good.
I live in Indiana! It's frustrating because all the campuses around me are small so they offer orgo 1 only in the fall

My advice would be not to apply in the summer if you cannot take this retake AT LEAST by the end of summer. I fee like Orgo2 is an important class for MANY schools ( I know some only have Orgo1 with lab mandatory) and I feel like applying with a D+ without even showing improvement in any way MAY steer schools clear of you.

I am not sure, that's just my opinion.

I think, ideally, would be to find the Orgo2 class in the spring, so that you can get a B or better and prove to Adcoms that you made up for that bad grade immediately. Otherwise, I would say summer, at least.

That's what I'm thinking of doing i can still take orgo 2 in the spring so if i can pull if a good grade that'd be better than nothing.
