    do you have a good explanation for the F's in both of the chemistries? I think it doesn't matter if you get F's as long as you keep your GPA within acceptable range of at least 3.0. I mean emergencies can happen to people so as long as the F's don't represent your true capability then just retake those courses and get better grades. I got Ds and Cs in g chemistries too so I have to retake them!

    I have the same problem. I got a C in orgo 1 and will probably get a F in orgo 2. I am reaaaallly worried about whether schools will make a big deal about this. My science gpa sucks also... about a 3.3.

    I did pretty ok in my undergrad (3.8 GPA). However, my graduate school turn out to be a nightmare. I did get an F in organometallic course. Do you guys know if pharmacy would count the F grade in grad school at all?
    Thanks very much for feedback.

    You guys don't have to worry, one or two Fs won't matter. I had an F in microbio, which was a prereq, retook it and got a B-. I still got into a pretty competitive pharm school. As long as you don't consistently get Fs and retaking it for a better grade.
