I have a 2.8 GPA from back in 1996 when I got my BA, but I didn't take any of the required science courses to get into med school. This semester I am taking 3 courses: Principles of Bio 1, Prep for Chem, and Intermediate Algebra. I got sick with pneumonia in February and had to be out of school for 2 weeks. I failed 1 bio test and got a 73 on the first one. I also failed the 1st chem test and got a 79 on the second one. Rather than take the chance of getting a c grade or lower in these classes shoud I withdraw from these classes now, take them and be content with whatever the grade that I am able to bring them up to at this point and do better in all my classes from now on, or should I stick it out and if my grades are not I want them to be just take the classes over again duirng the summer and the fall semester and have my grades recomputed? My biology professor told me that I would have to get 100s in the next 2 tests, the final, and get As in my next paper, lab reports, post labs reports, and in the quizzes just to walk away with a B grade. My chem professor told me that he would let me know by next week if I should drop his class after her grades the 3rd test that I don't think I did well at all in. I'll be honest I didn't give it my 100% study wise. It's been since 1996 since I went to school and my study habits are very rusty to say the least. That's why I don't want to throw in the towel because I know if i study well and focus I can do very well in these classes and the rest of my classes.

I am not going to apply for admission, until a year and a half or 2 years from now. I still have to do all my pre med requirements.
