So, I just finished my first quarter at a UC and received my fall quarter grades, not as good as I had hoped. General Chemistry: A Calculus: A Spanish Literature: B+ English/Writing: C I feel satisfied with most of my grades minus English/Writing. I had set my goal at the beginning of the quarter to get at least a cGPA of 3.5 and I don't feel too good about not meeting my goal. This means my cGPA is 3.325 and my BCPM GPA is 4.0. I know I will still have time to bring my GPA up and it could be that I'm still kind of disappointed in myself for my poor performance in English/Writing. But, what I really want to know is if this bad grade in English/Writing will bring me down in the future when I apply to medical schools.
