Alright, so with medical schools wanting to "make sure" that you can handle their courses and make the cut, about how many semester's worth of "good, solid grades" do you think it's necessary to prove yourself? The question sounds kinda weird, but if an individual has like a 3.55 cum and 3.4 science, for example, those can be brought up to pretty competitive levels within a year. But what if that 3.55 had a declining trend, or was just riddled with C's and stuff here and there, rather than having an upward trend. Then, would a year's worth of 3.7/3.8 etc. prove to admissions committees that you can handle their coursework? or would it take longer?
