I am a post bac student I was a cs major and decided to pursue medical school after i got my bachelors. i wasnt really serious about school until then. since that time i have gotten straight As and i got a 11 11 11 on my MCAT. the question is that my sophomore year i was a lazy bum and i was getting like a C- in my class and then missed a midterm and got an F. i retook the class and did okay on it. how bad is this going to look? thanks

You'll be fine. Admission committees love upward trends and learning from your mistakes stories. Straight As and your solid MCAT will more than compensate for a single F.

It's most likely not a deal breaker. I've got a similar background (IT to MD) and had way more to overcome than it sounds like you do. It wasn't even brought up in interviews.
