hey how do med schools view lower pre req grades (ranging from c+ to a B)? Am I essentially done for because of this even if my bcpm comes to around a 3.5-3.6? I took upper division classes such as physical chemistry and biochemistry as well as orgo and received As in all of them but received a C in gen chem II, B in gen chem I, C+ bio I, B bio II, c then retake for A- in calculus, and C+ in Calculus II. I received an A in calc III and linear algebra however. These grades were not due to my slacking but moreso due to family circumstances (had to work 40 hrs a week to support family, parents were evicted from home, parent was terminally ill), which resulted in my lack of focus in school during the first 1.5 years of college. How do med schools view this trend and will I automatically be out of the running for top tier schools due to my grades even though I have a 36 MCAT?
