    I know that it depends on a lot more than just grades, but I am looking for some honest views on how much of a handicap my grades will be.
    I am getting a 3.5 overall (I'm a Psychology major), but my science grades seem to be mediocre at best, compared to what I see on these types of sites. This is the rundown...
    Bio I: A
    Bio II: B+
    Chem I: B+
    Chem II: B
    Orgo I and II: B+
    Physics I and II: B
    Neurobiology: B
    I also got a C in Pre-Calculus. On the bright side, I am now taking Biochemistry and it looks like I will get an A in it. If anyone else has had similar or worse grades, I'd like to know how things turned out for you.

    That's 3.31 assuming everything but Neuro is worth 4 credits and you ace biochem, but I'm excluding precalc...
    Not bad, perhaps lower cusp of competetive schools, but with a good MCAT 30+ and good EC's, you should get some interviews and some acceptances. Fear not! :)

    Thanks for the speedy replies, and I appreciate your encouragement. :) My main reason for concern is that I have always had the impression that a B or C here and there is okay, but that they expect mostly A's in the science classes...obviously, my trend is more in the B-range.

    Just make sure the rest of your app and secondary screams "I rule"...
    If you can get in the door, get an interview, and amaze them with your energy - intelligence - and compassion, you'll get in somewhere.

    :)
