I'm a little worried. It is a class about how the body works. And I want to be a doctor. But I got a B. It wasn't even a requirement for my major, I took it for "fun". Should I take it again to prove I can get an A?

Bad? Yes
Going to keep you out of med school? Not singlehandedly
Worth retaking? No

It's not bad. Don't retake it. Don't worry about it. Actually, don't ever think about it again.

You are never going to get into medical school.











Relax, you're fine.

I loved that class. In fact, it was my favorite class in all of undergrad. I learned so much . . . But my first exam score in it haunted me all semester. Completely under-studied for it.

Dude didn't you know a B in any science class means you can't go to med school
I mean even an A- is pushing it
If this was true I'd be so screwed on multiple levels. My science GPA is a 3.5. That means half of my science grades are A's and the other half are B's.

:(

If your removed neurotic questions from the student doctor forum, what would be left?

There's no reason to retake a class you got a B in, since a B shows you have mastery of the material. Don't get hung up on one grade in one class, just focus on maintaining a high performance overall

You'll be fine--I got a C in undergrad physiology, but I'm doing well interview wise. Also, I took two more higher division physiology classes after to prove I could do it and got two A's.
