My high school girlfriend of 3 years got really sick and for insurance reasons she had to move back to her home country for treatment. Long distance didn't work out. I got a few F's (4 in all). Most of them writing classes that I can only take every other year, unique to this institution. I'm a senior now, on track for medschool, well 3.0 gpa now, decent MCAT. I wouldve had a 4.0 if it wasn't for such a tragic event though. How do I convince adcoms that I can handle med school? Will they understand my situation?
