    Ok where to start, I am 31 years old, just finished my first semester of college in 12 years. When I was in school in 94-95 my only cares back then unfortunately were partying in which I paid dearly by failing out. Now 12 years later after my first semester back my grades are: psychology (A), History (A), Computer science (A), and Biology I (B+). Here is my point, I really wanted to make an A in bio but fell a little short and I know that medical schools look at science gpa sepreately, so am I screwed now? I mean I was hoping for an A average throughout. Will medical schools look at this as bad?

    Nope, you are screwed, start looking for a new career, otherwise you would be 60 before your first year acceptance. But no seriously, you are 31 and acting like an 18 year old pre-med student, grow up with questions like these, i hope you are kidding with the question too. You should be too mature for such questions. If you ARE serious, then NO your not screwed, focus on finishing you pre-med reqs, kill the MCAT and stop worrying about trivial stuff!

    AMEN! It's the complete package, not a single grade will decide whether you get into a med school. Good luck!
