Okay so...it looks like this semester is going to turn out worse than I thought. I spent my freshman year at a community college and got a 4.0, but of course that's nothing, and I'm sure med school won't even care about that. I transferred to a top 15 school for sophomore year, and during my first semester (now), there were some MAJOR family issues. They really caused me to screw up in school, I couldn't focus, and not being adjusted to the rigor of school like this (coming from a CC), my grades plummeted. In fact...it's awful. I'm not sure my GPA and med school dreams can ever recover: Language Course: C Science Course Lab: C Science Course: C Pre-Req Science Course: W That's right...2 C's in BCPM classes, a W in a pre-req, and a C in something else. Told you it was awful didn't I? My family troubles are starting to clear up...but I have this hopeless feeling now. I signed up for 15 credits next semester - 7 of them will count as BCPM credits and I'm fairly positive I can get A's in all of them. The other 8 are courses for my major, and I think I can probably manage at least a 3.6-3.7 or better spring semester. I also think I can pull a 3.7+ for my junior and senior years...but will any of it ever make up for this semester? I mean - this is a bad semester.
