Hey guys! So this has probably been beaten to death.... I am currently a 1st year at a top 10 med school (got lucky), but had a pretty rough 1st semester. I've been pretty worried about my grades from classes and was wondering if you guys knows know whether or not marginal pass grades during the preclinical years will really hurt someone's chances of applying for competitive residency programs. I know the school's name will maybe help me get a few raised eyebrows, and hopefully the rest of my application will be very strong. At our school, these grades are noted in the dean's letter. Thanks so much guys. I appreciate any input.
