Is it impossible for me to get into med school?

    I am a freshman and my first semester, I got a B in chem, C in bio and an F in calc..
    This semester, I am retaking calculus (probably going to be getting a B), and I got a D in bio, and I am probably getting a C in chemistry..
    I know I basically failed my freshman year, but going into medical school is something I have wanted to do since I was 5, no exaggerations there.
    If I retook Bio 2 my sophomore year, and I just didn't double up on sciences (huge mistake..) and I got an A, would that make up for it? Along with me getting a B+/A in physics and orgo?
    I am planning on changing my study habits, along with getting a head start and start studying the information now in the summer.

    No you aren't out, a good number of people flop their freshmen year, just don't repeat the mistake and turn your trend into one of high success and you'll be able to recover.

    I'm sorry! I only recently found this website and created an account, so I do not really know the forums..

    You're going to need to ace everything from now on to show that this year was a fluke.
