Ok guys i need some advice on gpa. I am a second year premed student majoring in biology and have an over all gpa of 2.6. I have taken biology I and earned a lousy C and a biology II a B. Starting my freshman year I had to take remedial classes, so I am not the typical premed student. I killed high school with a year of home schooling so my grades have suffered some in college. This semester I currently have a C in chem.I, but I dropped the class last semester. I can pull chemistry up to a B possibly an A with hard work. Since I have taken remedial classes and have dropped chemistry once will this greatly affect my med. school acceptance? I have had the privilege of working as an e.r. tech for 2 1/2 years now. I have been greatly exposed to life in the emergency room and love medicine. There have been times that I've been in the operating room til 4 in the morning and would have class the next day which did not help grades either. I love surgery especially trauma surgery, and will consider a surgery residency if I get into med. school. I have completed 53 hours of my undergrad. and still have organic and physics to complete. My concern!! Will I be able to pull off A's in organic. I need advice on what to do and when should I start studying for the mcat.
