I just want to know if admission committee for an MD school place more emphasis on pre-req grades than on over all GPA or Science GPA. If so, should I bother trying to improve my pre-req Orgo and Calc grades? Thank you

Bio A
Gen Chem A
Org Chem 1 A (taken in the summer)
Org Chem 2 B+
Phy A
Calc B+

Overall GPA- 3.78
Science GPA- 3.7

Either you are a poor troll, or you are so neurotic you need to get out and do something that DOESN'T relate to medical school or academics in any way. Seriously, do you honestly believe a B+ is a detriment to your application?

Yeah OP. Chill out. You don't have to have straight A's in every single subject to get into medical school. I used to be like this. Stop and life is so much easier.

Op I don't think adcoms in the carribbeans would even look at your application with those piss poor grades. Your best shot now is to apply to med school in Poland. Good luck.
