I had a bunch of issues happening in my family etc and that's why I lost complete focus in school. I am a first-year student and I'm ending my first semester(fall) with a 2.1 GPA. I failed 2 courses but I'm going to retake them during winter. I also took a summer course coming into my first year and I had a 3.7 GPA but with this terrible semester, I'm down to a 2.1 with 2 F's and 2 A's, and 2 B+. I'm worried that this can really ruin my chances of getting into med school. Now that I have full focus, I know I will have a really good spring semester and get 3.5+. If I get really good grades from here on throughout undergrad, is it possible to get to a 3.5 GPA? This was just one bad semester and it's my first college semester.
