Basically I went in to undergrad with unrealistic expectations of my study skills and time management (made As easy in high school). I had a lot of clinical experience in high school and decided I wanted to be a doctor. I went into undergrad pre med and took gen chem 1st semester (C) and cell biology (B). I took chem 2 second semester and dropped it with a W after it was apparent I would probably get another C. Unfortunately, I was still in denial about my study skills (it couldn't possibly be me! the classes are just hard ) so I continued to take biology courses genetics (D), microbiology (C), A&P 1 and 2 (C). I changed my major but I was a steady B student with a few As. Graduated with an uGPA of 2.89. By the grace of god I was accepted into 1 graduate program in epidemiology, my new field of interest. After being rejected by several grad schools and seeing how well my peers were able to do in undergrad, I really stepped back and reevaluated the amount of effort I put in to my school work. The time for making As on minimal effort was over and it took me 4 years of failing spectacularly to realize it and it is my biggest regret. Its now 1 year after graduating from grad school with a 4.0 (which I know is expected in an easy major) and I have done some clinical work and shadowing that has reignited my desire to be a doctor. I really can't see myself doing anything else. I plan to do a post bac program at a local 4 year university and take gen chem 1 and 2, orgo 1 and 2, genetics, physics 1 and 2 and biochemistry to finish by spring 2020. Obviously the goal (and expectation) is that I make As in all of these courses by using my new study skills, time management skills, and work ethic. However, even with these classes my cGPA will be around 3.3 and BCPM gpa around 3.14 (I think). At that point the only things that would be in my control are getting a competitive MCAT score and boosting my ECs (I have 1,300+ hours of clinical work, 50+ shadowing, 300+ research in public health + publications, 80+ volunteering). Do I have any chance at all?? Is an upward grade trend even worth anything if its still not great? Im honestly not sure of my GPA calculations since most AMCAS GPA tables aren't made for this situation. Thank you to those who read my whole rant!
