Avoid them as much as you can, but it's not the end of the world if you have a few B's. Get A's next semester.

If you have half As and half Bs on your transcript, you are at a 3.5 gpa, which is better than a lot of people who get into DO school.

Quit worrying.

I generally rate them as equivalent to a 3.3 GPA, somewhat better than C's and not quite as good as A's...

A B+ is a 3.3...a C is a 2.0. Big difference. At most schools a B+ is an 87-89%, which is definitely respectable. You should be happy your school gives B+s, because otherwise you'd have a B for an 89, which sucks.

Tell me about it. In my grad program my biostats course professor gave me a B for an 88. Not too happy but there was nothing I could do. Thankfully that was the only course with that grade assignment policy.
