How bad would getting a C in a higher level bio class be on my transcipt? I'm a junior planning on applying to enter med school in the fall of 2010. I've had a high 3.9 up until this point and have been pretty involved in extracurriculars. This semester, I think I just took on too much an its being reflected in my grades.

You have nothing to worry about. One C won't mean diddly with a 3.9.

A C? You can forget it all now. Might as well go to your local sanitation dept and apply for a job. You can truly forget medicine.

Dude what's up with all the anal premeds? Chill out ... try your hardest and learn something. In the end you will get in somewhere. Don't be such a tightass.

I have like 3, so it better not be that bad.

Well two of the 3 are C+'s so maybe that's better

I've never heard of anyone getting into Med school with anything less than A+ all 4 years. Just save yourself the application money and blow it on hookers!

Never good, but not detrimental in the least. Be prepared to explain it in an interview though.

One C not a problem. Many C's... that's a different story.

try your best to avoid C's and avoid classes you don't have to take if there is a possibility of making a C. They stand out in a bad way on your transcript. If it matters, I had two C's and I got in ....
