    Sandhar,

    I think you stand a fine chance. You will most certainly receive secondarys from the schools assuming your MCAT scores are average with the schools you are looking at. In your secondary, explain somewhere if it is relavent what happened your freshman year to make your grades so poor. If you receive interviews from the schools they will undoubtedly look at it and ask you questions about your grades. DO schools care more about you as a person than your stats, so I would say keep trying to pull your GPA up closer to like a 3.3 - 3.5 if possible, and do well on your MCATs. I would say that it is worth a shot. A lot, I mean A LOT of people don't do too well their freshman year of college, and you have extenuating circumstances....in other words, don't sweat it right now and keep busting your butt! Good luck.

    Tiffany
