Sorry, I know this question gets asked a lot, but it is usually in the pre-medical forum. I want to hear from the ones who actually made it, the ones who have facts, not speculation on the subject. So here is my story. I was a terrible high school student, one that did not care about grades. I did graduate, but only with a GPA of 2.2. Because of my terrible high school years, I could not get acceptance into any university, so I had to start in a community college. I am 100% dedicated to school now, and have a GPA of 3.8/4.0. My community college has a transfer connection with Indiana University, and as long as I leave community college with a 3.5, I will surely get accepted to IU. Once there, I plan to get a bachelor's in an area of science, either biology or cognitive science. My question is, even if I do great at IU, take all of my pre-med pre-reqs at IU, volunteer, and do pretty good on the M-CAT, will the fact that I had to start at Community College ruin my chances of Medical School? Sorry I am asking you guys, but you are the ones with the true experience. Do I have a chance?
